9th - 10th Century Petersen Type C Sword

Petersen Type C swords see the height of their use between the 9th and 10th Centuries. This hilt type also falls under Oakeshott's type II (which also includes Petersen's type A, B, H & I) which is considered to be a Norwegian native style since the overwhelming majority have been found in Norway or in areas of Norwegian invasion. The majority of finds are also single edged.


The example I have made is single edged and the hilt has been covered in silver and copper inlay and has twisted silver wire between the pommel and lower guard.


The sword is availble single or double edged.

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