CAS Hanwei Saxon
CAS Hanwei's smiths have outdone themselves with their recreation of a 9th Century Saxon sword by replicating a technique used by the Saxons and Vikings and producing a stunning blade that features a pattern-welded core with high-carbon edge sections. This technique was used by the old-time smiths as a means of producing blades (just for the rich folks) that were sharp, resilient and decorative and, eleven hundred years on, CAS Hanwei has made them affordable.
The sword's design is based on a 9th Century piece found in the bank of a stream in England in 1976 and now on display in the Yorkshire Museum.
