Looking for information about an Ulfberht sword
I'm looking for any information photos or experience about a specific Ulfberht sword. The sword can be found on page 125 of Swords of the Viking Age by Ian Peirce. I am hoping maybe someone has had a chance to see it in person or maybe document it further. I know it may be a shot in the dark, but any info is appreciated. I'm especially interested if anyone has any further documentation or shots from other angles.

Hi Robin,
That Ulfberth sword used to belong (maybe still does - I'm not sure) to David Oliver, the editor and publisher of the Park Lane Arms Fair catalogues, whose speciality is early mediaeval swords. He lives in Northumberland and I might be able to find an email address for him if you want to contact him. I don't think he's on the 'myArmoury' forum. Let me know.
Absolutely... I would greatly appreciate it.
OK, I tried to contact David Oliver but he is away until 16th May. However I did find his email address.

So you could try that later. He also has/had an INGELRII sword! Good luck.
I edited your post to remove the email address. Posting email addresses on a public forum like you did is a great way for web-crawling spambots to harvest another email address to send spam to. I wouldn't post someone else's email address that way without their permission.

Back to the thread...
For comparison there are several replicas of this sword out there,

Starting from Windlass: http://www.museumreplicas.com/p-1637-viking-ulfberht.aspx

To the custom sword A&A made for Tim Lison: http://www.arms-n-armor.com/custom941.html

Appreciate the input... Its moot now though. Taking it a different direction.
