ashtar.
Way better than the Dilbert sword. Keeps curving up toward the user, isn't funny.

Also, thanks David Koch!

The Dilbert sword becomes a lot more effective when you replace the standard runes with ones describing restroom blowjobs or cool ranches.

This is the kind of thing I'm talking about when I piss all over the work of some 'swordsmith' that cuts the thing out of a sheet and grinds it to shape.
Mr. Purple Cat Esq.
In fairness those pissy swords may be a lot better than the ulfberht as they may be made out of far more advanced materials, like vanadium hsla steel

Mr. Purple Cat Esq.
This while thing is obviously really cool tho, the whole mystery surrounding this hyper-advanced tech of its age is awesome!

Vikings only used axes and mostly they were high carbon axes coated in nanotubes.

Hell, even a cheap W1 steel might be an improvement.

That said, all props and respect to the founders of the iron age. Even with a shitload of silicon and carbon it's still a challenge to melt iron. And actual steel is a beast.

SolRo
I'm not talking of wanking off about which sword is 'better', just the talent and skill in making it.

Five boners for the martensitic transition! That gets my dick to a hardness of Rockwell 60+!!!!

And here you go.

Do Vikings even use swords?
M-DEEM
He'll make you one for 00. If you ask nicely, or trade in hack-silver, he'll sprinkle a few strands of his mighty beard into the crucible

00 in viking money is like two monks, 1&1/2 pigs and a well bred Anglo-Saxon woman. Is that worth a nice sword that you'll most likely drop in the north sea? I don't know, I like my self some porking after porking.

All the fancy swords in the world won't save you when King Harold busts your shinny scale-mailed arses.

EvilHomer
Please, King Harold was a bitch. The only reason he beat Hardrada was because God wanted to punish the English by saddling them with French kings.

Needs the "poe watches people make stuff" stag
