Medieval Swords and Daggers, Hand Forged Battle Ready Medieval Swords
The knightly medieval sword developed in the 11th century from the Viking Age Sword. The most evident morphological development is the appearance of the cross-guard. The transitional swords of the 11th century are also known as Norman Swords. Already in the 10th century, some of the "finest and most elegant" of the Ulfberht type of "Viking" (actually Carolingian/Frankish) swords began to exhibit a more slender blade geometry, moving the center of mass closer to the hilt to improve wield ability.
