Note: The current batch of Jaeger swords were a little heavier than we wanted them. The extra steel brings their weight up to 3lbs 7oz, which is about 12 ounces heavier than we were looking for. It's still a beautiful, rugged, nearly indestructible sword, but the next batch will be thinner and lighter. For this reason, we're marking this batch down. A great chance to own a stage combat sword for a low price!
The Germanic word Jaeger means two things:
1: A hunter
2 : A northern sea bird that harasses weaker birds until they release their prey
The Vikings were the fiercest of medieval hunters, and they tended to make quick, harassing raids on weak villages until the villagers released their treasures. Not a bad name for one of their swords, eh?
The Jaeger Viking sword is created for stage combat. It's made from rugged, tempered high-carbon steel with a full tang and a rounded tip for safety. The edges are extra thick for blade to blade contact.
Physics--the eternal enemy to all swordmakers--dictates that when the edge of one steel blade strikes the edge of another, nicks will appear. The Jaeger is not immune to physics, but it will last longer and take many more nicks than most normal swords. Think of it as the armored fighter that stands at the front of the adventurers and takes all the damage.
The Jaeger's guards and pommels are made from a polished-but-uncoated steel, which prevents chipping when struck. The hardwood sheath is covered in a burgundy suede and sports two brass rings that allow the assortment to be hung form a belt.
In this world, there are birds that harry, and birds that lose their prey. Buy the Jaeger, and you can watch those birds with a really cool sword on your hip.
(Please do not attempt blade-to-blade maneuvers without safety equipment and proper training).
