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.
