Viking Sword Description

The Viking sword (also known as the Viking age sword) or Ulfberht is the type of sword prevalent in Western and Northern Europe during the Early Middle Ages.  The type of Viking sword was made famous in the Stiklestad battle. The Viking sword developed in the 8th century from the Merovingian sword and was the primary sword used by the Scandinavian based Viking people.  The sword was derived from the Roman Gladius sword.  It is a single handed sword with a sharp tip and edges designed for slashing as well as thrusting. Viking swords remained popular until the 12th century where they blended into Norman swords which were the first stages of the knightly sword.

Blade Materials

The sword is made from Pattern welded Damascus steel.  Pattern welded Damascus steel is a hard heat treated, folded carbon steel.  There are 11 pieces of steel, folded five times, making 352 layers.  The steel is the perfect combination of hardness and durability with a Rockwell hardness rating between 55 and 56 HRC.  High carbon damascus steel must contain layers of high carbon steel.  The high carbon steel we use is 1095 steel which is the highest content carbon steel used in swords.  The combination of the steel layers creates a sword that is strong enough to hold a powerful edge while having the strength and flexibility to withstand powerful collisions.  This makes the perfect steel for swords.  The handle is wood wrapped in leather with Damascus steel bolsters.  It comes with a leather sheath.

Honoring my Viking heritage

I recently purchased a portrait of a Viking image from Regal Pawtraits that used my photograph. It was superb and stimulated me to purchase a Viking sword and ax from Battling Blades. I couldn't be happier with the quality of the sword and ax received. I was especially pleased with the leather sheaths that covered the sharp surfaces of the items.
