Viking swords were the primary weapons used by Norse warriors during the Viking Age, which spanned from the late 8th century to the late 11th century. These swords were typically straight and double-edged, with blades ranging from 70 to 90 centimeters (27 to 35 inches) in length. They were highly versatile weapons used in both warfare and everyday life. They were carried by warriors on raids, used for self-defense, and served as symbols of status and prestige.

These swords were characterized by their strong, pattern-welded blades, which were made by forge-welding multiple layers of iron and steel together. This technique created a distinctive pattern on the blade and provided durability and flexibility, making them effective weapons for both cutting and thrusting.

The hilt of Viking swords often featured a simple crossguard and a pommel, with the grip made of materials such as wood, bone, or antler. Some swords also had decorative elements, such as inlaid metal or carved designs.

On the other hand, Oriental swords encompass a wide range of sword types from various cultures in Asia, including China, Japan, Korea, and Southeast Asia. These swords vary significantly in design, style, and construction techniques. One of the most famous types of Oriental swords is the Japanese katana, known for its curved, single-edged blade and distinctive handguard. The katana was traditionally worn by samurai warriors and became synonymous with Japanese martial culture.

Other types of Oriental swords include the Chinese jian, a straight, double-edged sword used for both cutting and thrusting, and the Korean geom, a single-edged sword with a slight curve.

Oriental swords were often intricately crafted and adorned with decorative elements, reflecting the cultural and artistic traditions of their respective regions. They were used in warfare, dueling, and ceremonial occasions, and many were considered symbols of honor and prestige.
