                               Peterson Type D- Bronze Hilt Viking Sword

Based on an original in the Museum of Cultural History in Oslo, this Peterson Type D Viking Sword is typical of those wielded by Viking warriors of the 9th and 10th centuries. The ornately crafted hilt signifies that its owner was of high status. The hilt fittings have been cast in bronze and mounted using the traditional method of construction; riveting a cap over the pommel base. The grip is also cast from bronze in a similar fashion to a sword found on the Isle of Eigg in Scotland. At the base of the guard is a protective strip of felt that may be removed if required.  The sword features a forged and tempered high carbon steel blade that is designed for hacking and slashing, such was the fighting style of the era.  The leather bound wooden scabbard is decorated with bronze “knot work” fittings of Norse origin and features a suspension loop allowing it to be fastened to a belt of baldric.
