Abstract Scope David Sapiro - dsapiro@cmu.edu, Ashley Guertin, Mary Story, Maxwell Li, Carnegie Mellon University. Blade material: medium carbon steel. The blade was forged from pattern welded steel in a typical European forging style of the era in which this sword was common. The hilt is a modern design based on historical examples of Viking swords. Traditional forging practices were used, but modern tools were used in the finishing processes.
