Historically speaking, it would seem, some Viking commanders received the title of Hersir. Proud warriors, their prowess were told by the skalds across the land. These leaders had the reputation of organizing, prepare and lead the best assaults on their enemies.
If at the start of the millenium, the title of Hersir included the role of a leader, or military commander, it was later recognized as being a representative of the royalty to the scandinavian communities. “So it the law! By my arm, so is the king’s will!”
The Hersir viking sword is inspired from the universe of Seyrawyn, a work by Martial Grisé and Maryse Pepin. On their lands where many cultures go alongside druids and dragons, only the accomplished viking warriors can carry the sword Hersir, the infamous weapon of the gods’ justice, and the will of the king.
The making of the Hersir viking sword again required the experience and innovation Calimacil is known for. Pushing the limits of the possible, the team ended up with a sword of great quality. The guard, of historical inspiration, of this weapon presents engravings depicting the nobility of the dragons. Its wooden handle, sporting 2 engraved metal rings, refines the looks as a whole. On its pommel, a vergvisir, a viking compass will show the way to go to the adventurous. Finally, on the blade and its fantasy-inspired curves, celtic knots melt together into the pattern, giving the Hersir a royal elegance.
The formidable Hersir is made for all ages, young and old! Be you a warrior, a rogue, a dwarf, an elf, an orc, a skaven or even a prince, with this blade in hand, you will be assured to uphold the law wherever you go!
Makers from Québec, visionnaries and artists, Martial Grisé, leatherworker and actor, as well as his accomplice Maryse Pépin, graphic designer and illustrator, are the heart of the McGray publishing house. Both of them also authors, they have a unique writing style between both of them. If Maryse represent the educative and playful aspect, Martial is the pillar of the storyline, reinventing the Medieval Fantasy genre.
Joining their talents, they created a unique and educative concept: Their famed dragon eggs give strengths. They published 21 books for all ages and their collections are bestsellers. They also developped a whole line of merchandise, among them Calimacil foam weapons
This is a perfect little sword for me to use as a secondary weapon or maybe with a shield. I love the Celtic designs because they match perfectly with my character and really add to the costume.
Holds up very well. It is one tough little sword. My only problem with the sword is that the foam in the tip of the sword is only about an inch and a half so you really feel it. But I do love this weapon, that's why I have 2 ;)
Lovely workmanship, exquisite detail with Celtic knot work and superb wooden texture on handle.
This is a great design and I love it but it’s a bit too short even with both of them I don’t have a lot of reach
Overall I was please the only thing is the handle is a bit small I am not sure if its meant for children I bought one at 79$. So I put some rope around it to make it larger and at the weapon inspection for a larp the inspector knew why I put the rope and commented on the handle for this model being too small (so Its not just me). However for the price I am very satisfied with my purchase.
