I made these swords for our grandsons when they were down for the weekend. There was some mention of having a say in picking my rest home by our daughter-in-law when we took them home. I think they were about 22” long, hem-fir without any finish. The hilts were half lapped and glued. It didn’t that the boys long to reinvent the way their Viking ancestors carried their broad swords on their backs. They found other uses for them too.
