The Oseberg style was widespread from the end of the 8th century to the middle of the 9th century and became known upon the discovery of a ship grave in Oseberg, on the shores of the Oslo fjord in Norway. The Oseberg style is characterized by representations of gripping beasts. These strange, not otherwise definable animal-like creatures, whose shapes were designed and arranged by their artisans in such a way as to fit any frame harmoniously, gradually superseded other motifs. They were prevalently depicted on articles of daily use made of wood or metal. But these gripping beasts can also be found in the carvings adorning the famous Oseberg ship.
The Oseberg style is also referred to as Broa style or Early Viking style.

Advisory Service: Questions and Answers

What is the difference between industrially rolled and hand-forged blades?

In the case of hand-forged blades, our blacksmith takes the already rolled spring steel and forges it by hand on the anvil or under the drop hammer. The steel gets more solid (denser) by forging. In the case of industrially rolled spring steel blades, the sheets of steel plate is cut to strips under drop snips, then ground or milled and immediately forged into the annealing furnace and oil-quenched. The properties of both kinds of steels are not very different, since industrial rolling is already very good! On forged blades are usually blacksmith marks, which give them an authentic and unique look.
