The Gotland
Limited Edition Viking Sword
(Viking Type Z)

This style of Viking era sword is referred to as a Type Z hilt in Petersen's Typology, due to the distinctive five-lobed pommel and downturned spatulate guard. Find places for this hilt form date from the late 10th into the mid 11th centuries.

The hilt components are investment cast in mild steel from original waxes carved by Leif Hansen under the direction of Peter Johnsson, based on Peter's first-hand examination and documentation of period originals of this type.

The blade is classified as a Geibig Type 4 (which some consider a sub-classification of the Oakeshott Type X), hand-ground from high-carbon steel to a fine satin finish, heat-treated by hand for maximum flexibility and to take a fine edge. These swords are sold sharp, unless otherwise requested by the customer.
