10th - 11th Century Petersen Type U Sword

Petersen Type U swords are used predominantly during the 10th and 11th Centuries. Examples of this sword type have been found across northern Europe and large numbers of them are decorated with some form of inlay or overlay using silver, copper and bronze.


The example I have made is decorated with lines of copper inlay on the upper and lower guards and twisted copper wire around the grooves in the pommel.


The grip is cordbound leather with raised decoration.


The blade is made blunt for reenactment battles (minimum 2mm edge and point rounded off to a 25mm diameter)

You can add etched decoration to the blade.


Scabbards sold separately.
