Ulfberht Sword - An old legend has it that a Nordic smith named Ulfberht developed the first purest steel blade. This crucial development achieved near-mythical status among warriors, making this one of the most important swords in the study of medieval weapons. The Ulfberht sword was a quantum leap in both technology and design. Not only was the material better, but the design of the sword was a definite improvement.

Ulfberht Sword- viking sword made with forged steel. High carbon blade made this a very strong and durable weapon. See UTube or Netflix for 1 hour doc on how a modern day blacksmith recreated the sword using ancient techniques- way cool.
