Holmganga? Yes, holmganga.
Holmganga. Loosely translated as "going out to the island" it meant an ancient Viking honor duel. The two (or more) combatants would be brought out to a small sand bar or island and presumably only one returned.
Well, our hand forged Holmganga Viking Sword represents the steadfast, stubborn Viking personality and grim determination necessary for such endeavors.
Now we're not suggesting that you and your friends have a holmganga the next time you're having a dispute over a Risk game. However, if you were to find yourself in the unpleasant situation of needing a stellar blade for a sticky situation, this would be it.
A scabbard is not included but may be purchased seperately. See below.
