Norman One-Handed Sword Eustace, class B
In the 10th century the Normans, direct successor of the Vikings put down roots in North France. Though now settled, in regard of bellicosity, courage and fortune of war, they were equal to their Norse forefathers. Hence it's not surprising that of all high-medieval swords the Norman swords bear the most resemblance to the swords of the Vikings. This re-enactment reconstruction of a Norman one-hand Sword by Ulfberth® stands in the tradition of this quite dynamic sword-type. Typologically the sword is clearly an Oakshott Type X, the guard is of type no. 6 and the pommel a type A.
