The celebrated Cawood Sword, named after its discovery location near Cawood Castle in England, is regarded as one of the finest and best-preserved examples of an 11th century Viking sword in existence. Preserved in the mud of the bed of the River Ouse for almost a millennium, the sword has now found a permanent home in the Yorkshire Museum, where it is a leading attraction. What is almost certainly a "sister" sword was unearthed in Norway in 1888, giving a valuable clue to the Cawood Sword's origin.

Hanwei's version of the sword replicates the lobated pommel and steeply down curved quillons of the hilt perfectly, while the wide fullered blade is reproduced in 5160 high-carbon steel. The weight and balance provide for a very usable sword. No details of the original scabbard are known, but the styling of Hanwei's leather-covered version is typical of the period.
