This Viking sword is very traditional in look and style (unless look and style are the same exact thing, in which case I withdraw the word 'look.' Although that would make the sentence kind of awkward, which I guess is why I put two adjectives in place of one in the first place). It features a typical semi-circle pommel, short guard and straight, parallel-edged blade. The grip is wrapped with fine, weathered leather strips and is a joy to hold.

Overall, this is a very solid, comfortable and workman sword. Its low profile makes it very easy to hold and carry and swing. This is the ideal weapon for any Norse-based character, although it also works well with mercenaries and soldiers. Oh, and if you're looking for a training weapon to practice sword techniques this sword is ideal.

Strandhewing was the popular Viking term for pillaging, raping, enslaving and looting a village. A typical Viking would wake up one morning and think to himself, �hey, harvest time is over, and I have some spare time. Sure would be nice to get me a nice English woman to help clean up around the longhall. And maybe a few of them fluffy English sheep.� The Viking would then get his buddies together, board one of their lightning-fast longships and go to the nearest enemy coast for some good ol� Viking fun.

Truth be told, Strandhewing actually became a big part of the Viking economy, adding some disposable income and raising the quality of life for Vikings everywhere. Of course, that sort of one-way international trading had an adverse effect on their enemies. But you gotta break some eggs to make an omelet, right? Or .. uh ... some sort of Viking egg dish that is eaten for breakfast anyway.

The flintlock pistol was the greatest advance in pirating since the wooden leg. The concept was fairly simple: gunpowder was stuffed into the barrel. A lead ball, usually wrapped in some sort of fabric, was stuffed in. A hammer was then pulled back half-way and left that way until the gun was ready to fire. The pistol technically was not meant to fire in this position, although sometimes they were known to go off half-cocked (and yes, that is the origin of that expression). When the gun was ready to be fired, the hammer was pulled back all the way and the trigger was squeezed. If you're feeling flinty, go check out the Strongblade selection of flintlock pistols, blunderbuss pistols and flintlock rifles.
