Viking padlock, open by hawkthrower Viking padlock, open by hawkthrower
The padlock opened. It consists of three pieces. The key is pushed in the rear of the lock, depressing the springs and allowing the center piece to be pulled out.

This kind of lock keeps honest men honest. If you want security, get a Masterlock. But if you want period security, this an a watchful eye'll do just fine.

very nice!

A more secure version uses threads on the center pin. Even pliers have a hard time to pulling it out because of the key/pin shape. The spruce forge manual for locksmithing has awesome instructions/diagrams for all these old locks. But this is an amazing piece!

Thank you.  I need to make more of these.  I will try a screw-key lock as well.

That is extremely cool - I had no idea that locks like this existed. How big is the lock?

Thanks :) The barrel is 3.5" long by .75" external diameter. It's 2.75" tall when closed, and the key is 5.25" long.
