Norman One-Handed Functional Sword | Ready For Battle Swords

Norman One-Handed Functional Sword | Ready For Battle Swords

In the 10th century the Normans, direct successors 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 forfathers. 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 battle-ready reconstruction of a Norman one-handed sword by Ulfberth® stands in the tradition of this quite dynamic sword type. In terms of typology, the sword is clearly an Oakshott Type X, the guard is of type no. 6 and the brazilnut-shaped 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 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.
