Peter Morwood

An awesome Peterson Type I Viking sword made by Jarkko Niskanen in Finland: the blade has a pattern-welded core, with plain carbon-steel edges added on; the guard and pommel have copper and silver wire inlay, the pommel itself is of historically-accurate construction, not one casting but two sections riveted together.

Now the Really Awesome part: “This viking age sword I made as my thesis work in North Karelia vocational college crafts and design." And not long ago, because according to his bio information he’s just 22 years old…!

What sort of work will he be producing when he’s 32?

    Pattern-welded cores are amazing. They’re made by strapping short strips of steel together and then beating them flat so...
