This re-enactment reconstruction of a Norman one-hand Sword by Ulfberth® stands in the tradition of this quite dynamic sword-type. Typologically the sword is clearly an Oakshott Type X, the guard is of type no. 6 and the pommel a type A.
The hand-forged spring-steel balde is oilhardened and well tempered to a Rockwell hardness of approx. 48-50 HRC. It's forged up to the tang and peened with the pommel. The wooden grip ius wrapped with leather-lace. The Guard is forged from mild-steel. The blade has got a distinctive fuller which offers both flexibility and a lesser weight.
The edges are blunt and the tip is rounded for safety. Each of our Norman one-handed swords is intricately crafted by hand.
