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.

Super well done. My second sword from this company already. Thanks, Brian!
Its of a beautiful design, but the blade is a bit not straight. However it is sharp out of the box and seems able to stand up to abuse. I bought this for a wall hanger so Im not too picky on minor flaws.
I had Brian update me constantly as I was waiting and he was always patient and kept me informed throughout the building process. The sword is beautiful. I feel the power of the Gods in it! Seriously buy these swords like right now!
Positives: The damascus pattern is beautiful. The quality is unmatched at this price range. It is clearly a hand forged blade. It is heavy and well balanced. The handle is comfortable. Overall, I am incredibly happy with this blade and will be purchasing more from Battling Blades
Negatives: The scabbard leaves a bit to be desired. The edges of the guard and pommel are a little sharp and hurt when swinging the sword, but that's nothing a small file can't fix.
Beautiful, authentic sword. Proud to owns such an authentic recreation of history. Damascus blade is beautiful. It will cut!!!
