viikinkimiekka XIII by jarkko1 viikinkimiekka XIII by jarkko1
Z-tyypin miekka. Malli oli tavallinen myös suomessa viikinkiajan loppupuolella. Terän keskiosa koostuu kierredamaskoinnista, ja reunat ovat 0,6% hiiliterästä. Vaikka damaskoidut terät olivatkin tavallisimpia hieman varhaisemmissa viikinkiajan miekoissa, tunnetaan niitä myös myöhemmistä malleista, kuten Z- ja X-tyypeistä. Väistin, ponnenalunen ja ponsi ovat patinoitua rautaa. Ponnenalusen ja ponnen lohkojen välissä on kierrettyä hopealankaa. Kourain on pähkinäpuuta ja nahkaa. Tuppi on mäntypuuta, sisältä pellava- ja villakankaalla vuorattu ja kasviparkitulla naudannahkalla päällystetty. Kannike on pähkinäpuuta. Tuppeen kuuluva vyö on niinikään naudannahkaa, messinkisellä soljella ja päätyhelalla. Miekan terän pituus on 74cm, kokopituus 90cm ja paino 1245g.

Type Z sword from late viking age. Blade haves twisted pattern welding in the middle, with 0,6% carbon steel edges. Even though pattern welded blades are most typical in earlier viking sword types, there is examples of pattern welded blades in later types, like Z and X as well. Lower and upper guard and pommel are made from iron and patinated. Between the upper guard and pommel lobes there is twisted silver wire. Grip is made from walnut wood and leather. Scabbard is made from pine wood, with leather covering and linen/wool inside. Belt slide is also made from walnut wood. The belt buckle and end are made from brass. Blade lenght of the sword is 74cm, whole lenght 90cm and weight 1245g.

Awesome!  Did you forge the fuller or grind it in after forging?  What process did you use to etch the fuller?

I forge the fullers for my swords. I etch blades using ferric chloride. I simply flood the blade into solution for 0,5 - 3 hours. Depending the wanted etch depth.

is it bad for a sword if I leave it exposed (not in a sheath)?

It does not matter if the blade stays dry and clean.

Well, the maker himself always see some "flaws". But anyway, I'm really pleased about this one.

Excellent! Type Z is an exceptional design in itself, your blueing in contrast with the bright silver wires makes it even more special.
Remarkable!

Thanks. Type Z really is kind of climax of viking age swords, I think.

Think you might do a Ring-hilt style sword from the migration-period and dark ages?

Wow!  Your work gets more and more stunning as the days pass.  Have you considered making an Ulfberht style sword?

jarkko1 Featured By Owner May 31, 2017   Artisan Crafter
Thanks. I have not actually planned to make ulfberht sword, as no one have asked for one. But I have made two blades with similar style inscriptions. For example this one viikinkimiekka IX by jarkko1 . Ingelrii was one common inscription along with ulfberht.

Wow, you certainly could make one!  That copper pattern on the hilt and pommel is very impressive.

Great sword, and the wool lining to the scabbard (I assume oiled?) is a master touch!

Thanks. I have not oiled scabbard linings. That's something that customer can do, if he likes.

Tässä on mielestäni parhaan näköinen tuppi kaikista miekoistasi. Vinoneliökuviossa on jotain vetoavaa.
Tykkäsin myös vyön nauhaornamenteista. :thumbsup:

Kiitti. Idea vinoneliöistä tuli asiakkaan puolelta, ja hyvältähän se kyllä näyttää.
