Near my parents' summer cottage, one ULFBERHT has been found.

Nice!  I have that sword too!  :D

Here's a pic of mine next to another Viking sword I used to own.  The other sword is a replica of the River Witham Viking sword.  I ended up trading the River Witham because I didn't like this reproduction.  They made it way to heavy (over 4 lb.) and it felt like holding a crowbar.  It looked really nice though so I was disappointed it wasn't something I wanted to hang on to.

I still have the Ulfberht though!  :)

I had no idea so many had been found in Finland. It makes sense in a lot of ways because Finland was so close and invasions all failed. If you can't invade them, trade with them :D

Very nice. 

Probably a good thing you didn't have one of those when you were much younger.   ;D

You haven't sharpened it yet?

Thanks guys!
There are a strange lot of them in Finland.
Sharpening is to be expected. There is so much material removal.
The Joe has two Viking swords!

I think that if I ever saw a young lady from Timpa's part of the world wearing the swords like that....I would be polite. 

Very, very polite.

Check out a couple of YouTube videos of sword dancing from his part of the world.
