The Battle of Stiklestad was the final battle of St. Olaf. This was old school warfare, with two hosts meeting face-to-face and sword-to-sword. It was a brutal, bloody and deadly fight, and in the end the mighty Olaf fell. Gaining a lot of fame for his exploits, he was eventually canonized as St. Olaf. This attractive Viking sword is copied from a specimen that was quite involved in that kind of vicious encounter. Made from high carbon steel by Windlass Steelcrafts®, the sword is a beautifully balanced and highly effective weapon. Capable of both cutting and thrusting, it is also a delight to the eye. Pommel and guard are tastefully decorated with copper. Leather covered wood grip. Complete with scabbard. Can be sharpened for additional fee.

This is a cut above all other swords sold by MRL. Fit and finish on this sword is most excellent. Very good steel. Balance is superb. The scabbard is also better than others I have received and it fits the blade well. The hardware items on the scabbard are beautiful. I have complained about quality control on some swords I have purchased from MRL. This purchase restores my faith in MRL. Thanks for a GREAT STIKLESTAD VIKING SWORD !!!!!!

Sword is beautiful and cuts like a beast, only downside is that the scabbard is a bit loose, a common problem with windlass swords in general

I prefer swords a bit heavier than this. The Stiklestad is close to 2 lbs, and I believe edged weapons of this length should weigh at least a pound more due to it being easier to slice through cloth, flesh and bone. However, I still gave this sword a high rating because of its' excellent balance and the attention given to the detailing of both sword and scabbard. And, speaking of the scabbard, this one is superior to what you usually see on an under $350 beater, and certainly better than the usual Windlass product. It fits on the blade rather loosely, but the presence of small metal tags on both sides make it easy to secure the blade in place with leather loops. For the money, this is a beater you can't beat!

The Stiklestad sword was my fifth blade purchase from Windlass Steel/Museum Replicas, and as others have noted, it's by far the very best of the lot. I also own a Coustille sword, Russian Kindjal, a Seax, a Jambiya, the Officer's Kukri, and my most recent "Deal of the Day" purchase, a Brandenburg rapier. Every blade is sharp as the proverbial razor's edge, and a superb piece of biting steel. Next on the list is the Medici dagger and the British basket hilt sword. Without a doubt Windlass Steel/Museum Replicas rocks!

Good balance and very well made and when they say sharpened, they mean sharp! Makes me want to raid the English coast just holding it in my hands.

This was the first sword that I bought from Museum Replicas, and I must say I was not disappointed. The sword is very well constructed and beatiful. I bought the optional sharpening service which was worth the extra cost because the sword came out of the box razor sharp. If all of Museum Replicas weapons are like this one I highly recommend buying any of their weapons.
