Viking swords were derived from the German types of spathae, swords from the Iron Age.
They were quite long, had a solid protection and a strong blade. It is presumed that they are the predecessors of the later knight swords and they were bought all over Europe. A Viking sword generally had a wavy pommel with three lobes, long straight edges, a wide fuller and a short grip. The sword was short, probably for a better speed. A lot of Viking swords were decorated with inscriptions or images.
The original of this replica is found in South Sweden and is now part of the collection of the Statens Museum in Stockholm. The pommel, the cross-guard and a part of the blade are richly decorated. The grip has irregular ribs for a good grip and is partly finished with silver. The blade is made of hardened 420 carbon steel, with 0,4 to 0,5% carbon steel, 12 to 14% chrome and a Rockwell Scale Hardness of HRC 54. The length of the sword is 95 cm.This sword is a Petersen type Z.
