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 1,8cm and the shortest 1,1cm high. They are decorated with organic motives – which are based on various other original pieces, as the engraving was lost.

Sword blade
