The Viking sword

So the viking sword evolved from the migration period sword. This sword was shorter being around 28-32 inches in length, was slightly lighter, made of poorer material (especially the hilt) and had a more shallow fuller. As with the viking sword it was intended for one handed use and was very expensive.

This sword would have been more prone to wear and tear than the viking sword.

So basically for the viking period swords (more tomorrow) I will have three swords. These are particular to a region as they are not universally used. But basically between the 5/6th century to the 11th century the viking sword improves materials and make and design becoming a more efficient and better designed weapon. Length is one of the major changes in shape as it retains its basic appearance throughout. Eventually (many surmise) this becomes the knightly sword/longsword of the Middle Ages. (more on that later as well).

Three swords, unequal in quality, all lethal.
