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