Peterson type X. 32 5/8” broad fullered blade. Straight cross guard with slightly lobed terminals. One end with a small lug projection each side. That feature is unique in our experience but may well have been on other examples now lost to corrosion. Its function is speculative and worthy of further research. The pommel is of flat bottomed Brazil nut form. Excavated and professionally conserved condition. This sword is a classic example of the Viking sword in its mature form. See Oakeshott pl.X.13 for a near identical example bearing the INGELRII inscription, which he describes as “an absolutely classic example of the Type X sword”.
