Proof Norse sword needs to be OP!

    The norse sword was 1000 years ahead of it’s time at that day and age. They used pure steel like we use now, and no one knows how they got that pure steel, the only way to get it is to liquify the metal to get rid of impurities, but the vikings did not have the technology to liquify their metal. Norse sword needs to be OP.



  • Remember when the Norse Sword’s stab 2 hit VG’s on the chest?
    Those were the days…

    Sigh If only… :(



  • Uhm… the Ulfberht type swords were rarely made of pure metal, the quality ones were pattern-welded with mild steel or iron and a harder, higher-carbon steel. The steel was often had, in spiral-twisted bars, by trading with the Middle Eastern countries.

    The tradition of fine cutlery survives even today- some of the best “using” knives come from Sweden (Who’d have thought I’d mention Sweden?) or Finland, and usually consist of a very hard steel sandwiched between milder steel. This results in a superb edge without a ridiculous degree of brittleness.

    No one knows how to make “real” or traditional damascus steel today. The secrets have perished, victim of the winds of time…
