The importance Vikings placed on their swords is well documented. One of the important works on the subject, “The Sword in Anglo Saxon England” by H.R. Ellis Davidson links the central role the Viking sword played in the daily activities of the Norsemen. Such activities included, but were not limited to, warfare, attainment of manhood, and the last funeral rites. The warrior culture of the Vikings did in no way undermine their artistic creativity. Quite the opposite, the artistic genius and cultural achievements of the people are clearly reflected in their swords, jewelry and other Viking weapons. The literary sources of the Norsemen, such as their sagas and poems, reveal of the quality of a good sword and its significance in Viking society. With this in mind, our goal was to forge a Viking sword which reflects their spirit and embraces the cultural achievements attained by the Viking people.
