Although most early medieval swords are double-edged, some single-edged pieces are also found. This type of sword was possibly developed from the sax. It was often longer and probably mostly made locally.
This is a replica of a single-edged Viking sword from the 9th-early 10th century. The original was found in Hjartdal, Telemark and is currently in the Universitetes Oldsaksamling, Oslo.
The sword is 92 cm long, with a blade of 76 cm long and 5 cm wide at the grip. The blade, guard and triangular pommel are hand forged for an authentic look. The balance point lies at 15 cm below the guard. The sword weighs between 2,1 and 2,3 kgs.
