Edition Viking Sword
Type X Hilt, Oakeshott Type X Blade)
We named this sword
after the legendary Battle of Stamford Bridge, often
considered to mark the end of the Viking era in England.
The battle took place on September 25, 1066, shortly after an invading
Norwegian army, under King Harald Hardrada, defeated the army of the
northern earls Edwin of Mercia and Morcar of Northumbria at Gate Fulford
two miles south of York.
King Harold Godwinson of England met Harald with an army of his own,
taking him by surprise, unarmoured and unprepared, after a legendary
forced march from the south of the kingdom.
The Stamford is inspired by several examples found in northern Europe.
Weapons like this would have been used by warriors of many different
nations at the time. Jan Petersen defines these hilts as his later
X type, that belong to the 11th C.
The tea cosy pommel holds a central place, as an almost archetypal
form in the evolution of the European sword. The Next Generation line
could never be complete without at least one example.
Mounted with the same blade that is used for the Reeve and the Bayeux,
it shares the same swiftness and eager bite as these swords.
