Weight for a Viking folding scale - 2 grams.

Here you can buy a detailed replica of a bronze weight for a typical Viking folding scale, which was made according to original finds from the 9th to 10th century.

This authentic weight in the shape of a so-called cuboctahedron corresponds exactly to the historical bronze weights of the Vikings.
The bronze weight measures 0.7 x 0.7 cm and weighs about 2 grams. Link to original Viking weights...

Viking weights in the shape of a cuboctahedron are first attested for the Viking Age in the second half of the 9th century and spread in rapid succession throughout the Baltic region.

One side of the scales was filled with so-called hack silver or silver coins, and the other side was balanced with the corresponding bronze weights until the pointer was centred.

In addition to the bronze weight with about 2 grams and the Viking folding scales from our range, you can also buy other weights with about 4 grams, 6 grams and 8 grams.



The early scale weights of the Viking Age were made of iron, which was covered with a thin skin of bronze or another copper alloy. This was to prevent the weights from being manipulated.

At the end of the 10th century, standardized scale weights were finally made of a copper alloy such as bronze.   

It is astonishing that despite the absence of a central authority, the standardization of uniform weight units nevertheless prevailed among the Vikings. Weights for Viking scales primarily came in three different forms:

Cubooctahedron weights were shaped like cubes with the corners cut off.

Spherical zone weights were shaped like spheres with the top and bottom flattened.

Double-zone weights were similar to spherical weights, but had a conical shape instead of a spherical shape.
