Looks like an interesting discovery in Scotland - Viking chief buried with his boat, axe, sword and spear. Would love to see more details for the weapons, but I'm not sure what the process is for removing all the rust/junk.

It may just be a trick of the picture, but that viking sword looks single edged, like the albion berserker.

It's the way it looks curving toward the tip, is it single edged or just really bent?

Honor, compassion, knowledge.
