The Albion Next Generation Berserkr Viking sword was inspired by a splendid weapon discovered 1909 in the remains of a burial mound at North Arhus Farm, Hjartdal Parish, Telemark, Norway. This is one of the most beautiful examples of this type. The dimensions of the blade on the Berserker are very close to this particular original. The Berserker is also influenced by other single edged swords of the Viking period. Although being a hybrid of the features of several swords, it is still a clear example of the type based on study of originals.
The single edged Viking swords were most common in Norway and were developed from the long sax of earlier centuries. The character of the Berserkr blade is more hefty than a double edged sword of the same size, while still being far from cumbersome -- a trusty, no nonsense shield splitter. Single edged Viking swords were still in use by the end of the 9th C and early 10th C.
The Albion Berserkr features a sharpened, tempered carbon steel blade with shallow fuller along it's whole width and length. This eliminates dead weight effectively, while allowing the sturdy spine to induce a superior stiffness to the blade. The grip is of stabilized birch, wrapped with cord and covered with the highest grade vegetable-tanned calfskin. The hilt components are investment cast in mild steel from original waxes carved by Peter Johnsson, based on Peter's first-hand examination and documentation of period originals of this type. The hilt of the Berserkr is of Petersen type B, very similar to the Type H, but slightly less rounded and more blocky. The pommel is one piece.
