This is a replica of a sword from the 9th century found in Ballinderry, Ireland. Similar swords were used throughout the entire Viking world, but were available for the highest ranks in society only.
The blade has a wide fuller and is engraved with the name +ULFBERHT+, refering to the Frankish smithy that made the original. The other side of the blade is engraved with the signs IXXXI, a decoration which is often found on Ulfberht`s blades. The engravings are deep and broad to imitate the original iron alloy. The blade is max. 6 cm wide and 79 long. It is made of carbon steel with a hardness of 54 HRC. The sword is 94 cm long, weighs 1,3 kg and is well balanced.
The grip is 15 cm long. It has two guards and a 7-lobed pommel. They are decorated with organic motives and are polished, as they were originally inlaid with silver. Part of the organic motives are based on similar sword designs, as they are partly lost on the original sword. The lobes of the pommel are lined with steel wire. The lower guard contains on the lower side an engraving of two `rabbit ears` and on the upper side an engraving of the name HILTIPREHT, probably the maker of the original grip.
