A replica sword based on an original historical sword from the time of the Vikings. Ulfberht swords are approx. 170 swords found in Europe in the Viking era and engraved with VLFBERHT. This is a Frankish name. It is likely that Ulfberht is a sign of high quality, used by blacksmiths who could deliver this quality. These early medieval swords were forged in the Rhineland. Most Ulfberht swords come from Finland and Norway. Vikings buried them in the graves of wealthy Viking warriors, which is why the swords in the north are well preserved. This Viking sword is delivered including a scabbard. The blade is forged from 1065 carbon steel and tempered to a hardness of 48-52 HRC. A beautiful decorative sword for on the wall, or for your Viking costume. When you blunten the blade, it's a great training sword for sword fighting or for Historical European Martial Arts. You can also use it for Viking reenactment battles.

Prevent rust and corrosion by oiling your weapons regularly. Remove rust easily with black sandpaper. Remove burrs with a whetstone. Make sure you have removed all burrs before using a battle-ready weapon, as they can cause wounds.
Maintenance & care
Just as with weaponry, you can care for your shoes and leatherware by applying a little Ballistol after cleaning. This prevents the leather from drying out.

Tip: How to adjust the finish of your armour and weaponry
Luxurious (polished)- polish the steel with metal polish or toothpaste. You can even give the item a mirror-like polish. Test on a small surface first!
Handmade (matte)- soak the steel in cola for 40 minutes to 20 hours. Check regularly and treat with black sandpaper.
Antique (patinated) leave the steel to rust for some time in a damp environment, preferably outside. Remove the red layer of rust, to reveal the corroded top layer.
