Genuine handcrafted 925 Sterling Silver sword pendant with engraved Norse runes spelling 'Ulfberht'. These runes were found on over 170 historic Viking swords and are rumored to be one of the smith trademarks used by the forge master making these weapons. This is a double sided pendant and included with the pendant comes a comfortable black cord for ideal wear of this piece.
In Norse society, owning a sword was a matter of honor and a sign of status. Most Viking warriors would go on several raids before they could afford this expensive weapon as it took up to a month to forge a single blade. As a result, these weapons were greatly valued by their owners with sword hilts often elaborately decorated or the blades being named. Some of these prized swords were handed down the generations of warriors, and the older the blade was the more valuable it became. Others were buried with their owners, oftentimes with the swords being ‘killed’ by bending or shattering the blade to prevent grave robbers from separating owners and their weapons.
