  1. Folks, A new sword find has been made in Norway. And there is a mystery concerning it. Check it out here. https://partner.sciencenorway.no/archaeology-ntnu-viking-age/viking-sword-found-in-grave-in-central-norway/1733656 Happy reading. SLAG.
  2. As of late I have been really interested in "Viking" age life and tools. As a part of this I have decided to convert all my traditional hand woodworking tools to viking age equivalents. I wanted to start to do this by forging these tools in a age appropriate way and since I am newer to smithin' I do not have many tools for that either so I thought I would make the tools for blacksmithing first. But the first thing I need to forge I don't have the proper tools make, and that is the stump anvil. I wonder if anyone here knows where I could buy one or anyone that has a power hammer that I co
  3. Took a Viking Era Blacksmithing class taught by Mr. Elmer Roush a few weeks ago. Great class! We went over mammen pattern axes, spears, arrowheads, and some other pattern axes. I was able to forge a large spear (my favorite exercise from the class), a mammen pattern axe, a mess of arrowheads (none of which I was super proud of, need more practice with those), and I managed to squeak in a tomahawk on the last day for fun! Great class, great facilities at John C. Campbell Folk School, great FOOD, and a truly inspiring, down to earth, helpful instructor and assistant. I can't wait to go back and
  4. October 10th 2012 NOVA "Secrets of the the Viking Sword" Documentary 9PM/8Central some photos here: http://www.doorcount...s.com/NOVA.html In the Summer and Fall of last year I had the pleasure to be involved in the production of a TV documentary program focussed on the Viking Sword. The program was produced for NOVA (http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/) though the work of National Geographic and Pangloss Films (http://www.panglossfilms.com/). In October of 2011 Pangloss Films came to my shop and documented the making of a special sword based on the research of Dr. Alan William's of "The Wal
  5. Finally got around to posting it, here it is my first knife not perfect but i cut my self on it so it works. I forged it from a rail road spike quenched it in motor oil and did detail work with belt sander and file.

    Seax and Sheath

    This sheath is handmade from red oak. split in half, carved out, glued, and wrapped. it holds the knife without anything to assist other than friction.

    Seax for Doc

    The knife was made completely by hand. I made it look rough on purpose so that it would look more...period. you've got to keep that viking roughness to it!
  8. Hey Guys, have been out in the shop today and came back with these three little Items: This ring brooch: This leaf key ring And last but not least my first attempt on the viking mead-bottle corkscrew I´d be glad to hear your opinion about that stuff. Kind Regards - Daniel
  9. Thought it was tim to introduce myself. I live in Trondheim, Norway, and I´ve been doing balcksmithing for the past ten years or so, some periods more than others. Now i have finaly have a smal shop in my garage, where i can work on my projects. I do mainly knives, and reproduction arowheads, axes and other tools from viking and medieval time. In daytime i am an archaeologist, and i wrote my MA thesis about blacksmithing tools and techniques in the viking period in Norway. So you could say this is my speciality in blacksmithing also, using smithing as a way to gain knowledge about the craftm
  10. Hi fellows, after so many people gave me so many useful tips on my last post about a Viking-ring-brooch I forged things came really clear to me. Today I forged a new one regarding all the new knowledge I gathered. This is what came out: Thank you guys again for sophisticating me. I´d be glad to hear your opinion about it. - Daniel
