    During the Viking age, swords grew slightly in length to 930 mm (37") and took on a slightly more acute distal taper and point. These blades had deep fullers running their length, yet still had single-handed hilts which often sported a lobed or cocked-hat style pommel. The fuller was used to increase the strength and flexibility of the sword while reducing the weight of the sword at the same time. This weight reduction and flexibility would allow the wielder to swing faster and harder strokes while, at the same time, allowing the sword to bend but not break when it would hit bone. While the pattern of hilt and blade design of this time might readily be called "the Viking sword" one should remember the widespread popularity swords of this sort enjoyed. All over continental Europe between 700-1000 AD this design and its small variations could be found.

    How to hold the Viking era sword - maybe Reply to Scholagladiatoria / Matt Easton

    Thrand Replies to Scholagladiatoria or Matt Easton about holding tight grip Viking age sword hilts. He replies to Matt's Video How to hold the Viking era sword - maybe and addresses Roland Warzecha's concepts and style of Viking age sword use as well and Thrand's own method pretty much bringing them all together to an exciting conclusion. So sit back grab an ale or mead and enjoy this reply to Matt and Roland about his views on griping the Viking sword and some test cutting as well.
