26 different types of Viking Swords were in common use from the 8th century & onward. Mainly defined by their hilt & pommel variations, as the blade types were quite similar averaging 94 cm in length & yet almost exclusively one-handed (Vikings tended to fight with a sword in one hand and an axe, buckler or other weapon in the other hand).  In 1927, R. Wheeler distilled Petersen's 26 types down to 9, from I to IX, which paved the way for the Oakeshott Typology system for Medieval Swords.

This exquisite historical Viking age knife was probably made from a cut-down sax blade. The blade is pattern welded, and the fittings, shown in more detail to the left and right, are magnificent. The grip is in the form of a bird, with decorations incised into the wood and bronze making up the grip. The total length of the knife is 31cm (12.5in). X-ray images show that the tang is quite short.

A seax is a short sword that was used  during the early part of the Viking era. It's a one handed single edged weapon with a blade length ranging from 30 to 60cm (12 to 24 in). Seaxes usually had simple fittings and no crossguard. Hilts were made of wood, bone, or horn. This photo shows a reproduction seax based on an historical 8th century seax found in the Netherlands.
