Viking Sword Ballinderry, museum replic

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.

Sword pommel

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.

Sword blade

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.

Advisory Service: Questions and Answers

How and what materials are your daggers made from?

The daggers are approximately made as follows. The basic shape of the blade is made by a laser CNC machine. It is burned from spring steel. The semi-finished blade follows then in the groove cutter, where the cutting edge and the groove are milled. The blade is then oil-quenched and tempered to the desired hardness. Then the guard and pommel is attached to the blade tang. The tang is usually peened at the end (behind the pommel) and the cross-guard hard soldered with brass. Hardwood plates are placed under the handle wrapping from genuine cowhide so that the handle is sufficiently robust for a safe grasp. The steels surfaces obtain the desired finish in the end - with a wire brush or with a felt disc with polishing paste.
