3.0 out of 5 stars Could be better., November 10, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Nova: Secrets of the Viking Sword (DVD)
This DVD is only about one Viking sword, the Ulfberth.
The narrator states, that the crucible methode used to make that steel, was highly superior to the pattern welding of other Viking swords. I strongly doubt that! The Viking sword, in difference to roman gladius, japanese Katana and crussader swords, had a flexible blade, which I don't think can be achieved by using only one single steel! Modern pattern welded replicas of Viking swords, show their vast superiority to swords of earlier or later periods!

It would have been better to make a program about the different types of Viking swords and different forging technics, and to compare different modern accurate replicas in tests.
