Ulfberht Sword/ Viking Sword- High Carbon Damascus Steel Sword- 39"- Stiklestad
Viking Ulfberht Sword DescriptionThe Viking sword (also known as the Viking age sword) or Ulfberht sword 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 MaterialsThe 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.

Excellent product! Marvelous craftsmanship. Would buy again.
Just got mine, and it is gorgeous. Tang is more fit for two handed but the blade is easily wielded with one. The pattern is absolutely gorgeous. The edge is ready to cut and you can hear and feel the sweet spot on the blade right where it is supposed to be. I couldn’t be happier. Took it on a water bottle test and cut cleanly through with little effort and a great recovery to swing again. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND
This ulfberht sword is a peace of art as well as a functional tool. Also the customer service is down right great.
You get a well earned 5 stars from me.
Really nice craftsmanship for the price. Oh, and Chris Michaels seems like a real ....
I bought an axe and sword for a Christmas present. My husband was stoked! Great quality and surprisingly well balanced! While I was nervous about getting the axe on time since it was made to order, the customer service was on point with all my questions. I would definitely buy from them again!
