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.
The hand-forged spring-steel blade is oil-hardened and well tempered to a Rockwell hardness of approx. 48-50 HRC. It's forged up to the tang and peened with the pommel. The wooden grip is wrapped with leather-lace. The Guard is forged from mild-steel. The blade has got a distinctive fuller which offers both flexibility and a lesser weight. The edges are blunt and the tip is rounded for safety. Each of our Norman one-handed swords is intricately crafted by hand. The sword does not come with a sheath. You can get a matching leather scabbard separately.
This is a premium-quality sword, made by ULFBERTH®
