Default Copy of viking sword

This is my last adquisition, a good copy of a viking sword. The seller only told me that sword was stored at home of his great grandfather.
the blade is marked, seems like a clover inside circle or maybe number 3.
Opinions are wellcome
Thanks

I'm pretty sure this was made by Kovex Ars, the clover mark is a bit different nowaday, but it could be an older one. However, the leather lace over the hilt and style of the pommel are really similar to some of his other swords.

EDIT : I think this is an older model of the 3rd one from top : http://www.kovex-ars.cz/index.php?p...d+Norman+Swords

I almost bought one once at one of the shows here in town that had a double twist core middle all the way down the blade.
