Viking Swords and Norman Swords
Vikings owning a sword was a matter of high prestige and wealth. The Viking sword was a single handed weapon that was in conjunction with a Viking shield. The sword was typically 23 to 37 inches long and the shape was the same as the swords from the Dark Ages. The Viking sword had a tight grip, long deep fullers running almost the length of the blade and a had a lobed or crocked hat style pommel. The fuller increased the strength and flexibility of the Viking sword while reducing the weight. Viking were able to swing faster and have harder strokes, while at the same time, allowing the Viking sword to bend and not break.
