The name Vikingsword is a bit alluding when you see the home page and every page heading with a sword which is not Viking made
I remember my first visit to this forum and noticed the sword. I knew it wasn't a real viking sword, but only because i had an interest with real viking swords, mainly the +Ulfbert+h.
Others visiting might get the wrong idea though...
To be honest, at first i wasn't even sure if you should read Viking sword or Viking's word seeing as the sword depicted wasn't a vikingsword.
Neither do i believe that academical standards do mean you should have an academical degree, but more likely to put forth facts and study instead of misinformation.
