Some long pieces of pallet wood lent themselves kindly to be easily turned into a sword. Living in an area in the East of England near Sutton Hoo, where an Anglo Saxon King was found buried, I thought I would make an Anglo Saxon sword, but an oversized one. As always I've made a YouTube video documenting the build and more detailed instructions follow below.

Thanks for checking out this Instructable, I hope you enjoy it!
