viikinkimiekka IX by jarkko1 viikinkimiekka IX by jarkko1
Viikinkiaikaisen miekan jäljennös. Malliltaan miekka edustaa H-tyyppiä, joka oli myös suomessa kaikkein yleisin viikinkiajan miekkatyyppi. Kahvan rautaosat on koristeltu kupari- ja hopealanka upotuksilla. Miekan terässä on damaskoitu "ingelrii" säiläkirjoitus. Vastaavalla säiläkirjoituksella varustettuja miekkoja on löydetty ympäri eurooppaa, niimpä voidaan olettaa ingelriin olevan viikinkiaikaisen asepajan nimi. Terä itse on taottu 0,6% hiiliteräksestä. Tuppi on nahalla päällystettyä puuta. Sisimpänä, terää vasten, on kangasvuoraus. Kokopituus 93cm, teränpituus 76cm ja paino noin 1,4kg.

Viking sword, type H. Blade is forged from 0,6% carbon steel and it bears pattern welded inlay of "ingelrii". Apparently ingelrii was name of one notable smithery in viking age, as many swords carrying same inscription have been found around Europe. Hilt parts made from iron are covered with copper and silver wire inlays. Grip is wooden with leather tying. Scabbard is also wooden, with leather covering and linen/wool inside. Total lenght of the sword is 93cm, blade lenght 76 and weight about 1,4kg.

This is a lovely piece of work, however i feel the inclusion of "ingelrii" is a bad thing. 
INGELRII and +ULFBERHT+ are signatures highlighting that a blade was not only of a certain standard but also was made by a certain smith, which will undoubtedly not be the case here. Why not use your surname instead ?

Ulfberhts, ingelriis and many others were originally names of specific workshops (even though they were imitated in other workshops back in time), indeed. Normally the case is, ofcourse, to use own makermarks (for example JNMEFECIT and JN that I normally use). However, if the customer wants to commission replica of sword with ancient maker mark, then that it is, and thats the reason why there is no my mark at all in Ingelrii sword, as it is replica of original ingelrii.

Oh i totally understand that, and there is no mistaking a modern sword with an ancient sword.
But it simply feels to me that the name is devalued by placing it on an imitation.

Leuat loksauttavan hieno työ. Onko kahva kenties päällystetty nahalla, vai näenkö ihan väärin? :)

Joo, kourain on kahdesta puupuolikkaasta, joiden ympäri on kiedottu nahkanauha.

Kaunis ja tyylikäs, mutta luulenpa, että tuota ei kannata ottaa mukaan kaupungille ja perustella poliisille kysyttäessä, että otin mukaan, kun pelottaa :D.

Kiitoksia. Joo, ei ehkä tuolla selityksellä menisi läpi. Itsensä tai sivullisten puolustaminen taitaa muutenkin olla suomessa niitä pahimpia rikoksia...

Näinhän se on, jos omaa turvallisuuttaan tai omaisuuttaan puolustaa, saattaa hyvin äkkiä olla syytteessä hätävarjelun liioittelusta, pahoinpitelystä jne. :(

how do you make the decorations that cover the whole surface of the hiltparts without them falling apart?

Small grooves, which widen to the bottom, are cut into iron surface and copper / silver wires are forged into them, so that they do not whole sink into groove, but wide onto iron surface as well.

so the wire/ twisted wires look somewhat like a mushroom in crosssection?

thanks a lot! 
so you first make a channel with a flat chisel and then undercut that channel to both sides?

Thats one way, its also possible to use some "mini" metal saw, that can be mainly used for some jewelry work and such.
