viking wire inlay


Recommended Posts




This has probably been covered, but I did a search and couldn't find the answer.

I was looking at the book "The Viking Sword" last night, and I was wondering how they did the wire inlay on the pommels and gaurds? I know how an engraver would do it. He would cut a grove about the diameter of the wire, then under cut the sides of the groove, and then lay the wire in the groove and tap the wire into place so that it expands into the under cut of the groove so that its fixed in place. However, the wires are laid so close together on these gaurds and pommels that it does not look like there is enough room to under cut the grooves. Does anyone know how this was done?


Thank you
