This is a replica of an original sword that was found in Ballinderry(Ireland), it is dated to around 900ad. The sword has two guards. The upper guard (below the pommel) is 1,5 cm wide and approximately 65 mm long. It has organic motives on both sides (back and front). The lower guard is 1,4 cm wide and 11 cm long. This guard has engraving on all for the sides: organic motives on front and back, the name HILTIPREHT on the upper side and a “rabit ears” motive on the lower side.
The inscription VLFBERHT identifies the manufacturer's name - the famous manufacturing center of the 10th century. This brand was at that time a kind of guarantee for the highest quality of steel. The manufacturing technology of Viking swords VLFBERHT was by the modern Western civilization as late as during the so-called the industrial revolution re-discovered. It is therefore not surprising that some archaeologists feel a little confused by this fact.
The pommel has five lobes, of which the biggest is 1,8 cm and the shortest 1,1 cm high. They are decorated with organic motives – which are based on various other original pieces, as the engraving was lost.
On both the front and the back side of the blade is an engraved inscription. The front side of the blade bears the inscription of the smith + VLFBERHT + in its fuller. The back side of the blade shows the sign IXXXI.
Made in the Czech Republic.
