A Viking warrior’s status was often reflected in the quality of his sword. The finest, the Ulfberht, made of high-grade steel forged in a crucible oven was worth as much as 16 milking cows. Ulfberht's are unique Viking swords used in Scandinavia around 800–1000 AD. The unique, high-quality steel they incorporated remained unparalleled until the Industrial Revolution.

Viking knife detail - This exquisite historical Viking age knife was probably made from a cut-down sax blade. The blade is pattern welded, and the fittings, shown in more detail to the left and right, are magnificent. The grip is in the form of a bird, with decorations incised into the wood and bronze making up the grip. The total length of the knife is 31cm (12.5in). X-ray images show that the tang is quite short.
