The Oakeshott classification of the Medieval sword is based on the morphology of the blade (while most early classifications are based on the morphology of the vessel). It divides swords into 13 main types - numbered between X and XXII. Ewart Oakeshott introduced this division in his book The Sword in The Age of Chivalry 1964 (revised edition 1981).
The system is a continuation of Jan Petersens classification of the Viking sword (De Norske Vikingsverd, 1919, revised and numbered from I to IX 1927 by R. E. M. Wheeler).
