I watched this last night,

amazing video showing historians, a modern day blacksmith, weapon specialists and engineers talking about what we know about Ulfberht sword... and..

the blacksmith makes one using ancient techniques and tools (if anyone still wonders why its soo complicate to make a sword, watch this!)

I found it. If you capture a norse lord, you can take equipment from them, the sword being one of the possible items. I've just about finished getting the vikings out of the North of England, I captured a few in a huge battle when I was after a wolf lorica for myself, and after stealing the wolf lorica I noticed the sword is there too. I decided against taking it after seeing the huge relations drop the wolf lorica got me, but after a day or two of consideration and now Northymbre is on the edge of collapse I'm going to go hunt for it, might be a bit better than my nad.

there is in fact an sword named an Ulfberht sword.  I picked one up off a captured noble, it has the letters on the side and does 35 swing damage and 26 thrust damage in the tempered state as opposed to the widow maker ulfberht which does 37 swing and 22 thrust.  I have also found false ulfberht swords.

Can I win that fight? I've been playing around attempting to build up my revenue streams before going to the ship. I have a farm in most of the towns now. I have enough renown currently to have a 300 army force. Once I get my boats built I can start building and training a massive army training it on the starting faction that decided to declare war on me.

If I can potentially win it I would love to. If not I may just run into it with just a single boat load of troops.
