Nordic Swords

Nordic, Barbarian and Viking swords.

For the Vikings the swords were fundamental, they were inherited in the families and they were taken like trophies in the wars. To these swords it was enough a single blow to kill the enemies, they were much heavier and bigger than those that were used until that moment in the south of Europe. The point was not sharp, so the swords were designed to cut rather than pierce the enemy. They were handled with one hand and were very offensive in character

Although the Viking ax was the most used weapon, the Vikings also liked to have a good sword, in fact they had the belief that only the warriors who died with the sword in their hands entered the Valhalla

The Viking sword was different from that of the peoples of southern Europe. In the south they continued to use short swords, in the style of the Roman Glaudius, while the Vikings forged bigger and heavier swords. Its main features were:

A thick leaf that narrowed toward the tip
About 90 cm long
Double-edged straight blade
Short handle
Little sharp point
Very heavy
As for decoration, in the swords of the nobles were runes and symbols, especially near the hilt, as a symbol of wealth and prestige
