Viking

The feared Vikings took to sea from Scandinavia in their longships for many reasons; to explore, to trade and to plunder. From this rich culture came some of history’s fiercest warriors. MuseumReplicas.com has a selection of fine Norse replicas, from clothing and jewelry to weapons and Viking armor.

Viking Swords

Viking swords were expensive to make. They were typically double edged, but single-edged swords were also used. The blades were pattern-welded, a method of sword making where iron and steel were forge-welded together. Together with weapons such as the battle-axe and the spear, the sword was one of the most useful offensive tools for a Viking warrior. Viking swords were typically meant for single-handed use, with the other hand holding a shield. They were more than mere weapons of combat; a sword often indicated wealth and status. Also, these blades were heirlooms and given names and survived generations.

Museum Replicas is proud of the variety of swords it offers. We carry a stunning range of Viking swords that would suit both the standard warrior and Viking royalty. We also understand that no Viking sword collection is complete without the Ulfberht, a weapon so ahead of its time it was considered mystical in some quarters. Our amazing replica does this sword justice. Also, check out the Migration Period Sword based on a 7th-century design and Eric the Red Sword that is inspired by the legendary Norwegian Viking. Of course, we have much more in this collection – blades forged with expert hands and with detail exquisite enough to turn the head of even the most battle-hardened Norse warrior.

Although an authentic Viking sword is hard to come by, we will give you premium-quality weapon replica derived from those wielded by the most terrifying seafarers in history.

Viking Axes, Knives & Spearheads

Long-handled Viking axes were widely used at the height of Norse domination. They might have been even more popular than the sword. The double-handed broad axe developed later, perhaps around the 10th and 11th centuries. The Viking warrior could not fight with the broad axe and hold the shield at the same time so he would wait patiently, shielded by the first line of soldiers, and rush out at the opportune moment to inflict damage.

Of all the offensive weapons, the Viking spear was the most common. It featured a spearhead fixed to a wooden shaft using a rivet or pin. The spear was ideal for thrusting and throwing. The blades at the top came in different shapes and sizes, with some exhibiting “wings” on them. Skilled Viking warriors are said to have had the ability to hurl two spears simultaneously using both hands.

Viking knives were another important part of the armory. They were carried throughout the day on the belt. The blade was shorter than the sax (or seax) that was popular during the early Viking Age. This one-handed, single-edged weapon had simple fittings and was made of bone, wood, or horn.

Museum Replicas has an excellent collection of Viking spearheads and spears, axes, knives, and seaxes. Besides looking good, all weapons in the selection are made with a high degree of care and detail and built to perform and last.

Review of: Battlecry Maldon Seax

It has a great feel to it. Love the handle and grip. Sheath is nice. Only gripe I have is that mine didn't come sharp enough to cut much of anything. But I can sharpen it so that's not a big enough issue to lower rating.

Review of: Padded Shirt

It is very nicely made. It isn't padded on the chest (just the arms); so it will be nice for the hot summer weather.

Review of: Runic Long Seax

This is the best battle-worthy replica of the famous Scramaseax that was pulled out of the Thames River in London. It's 2 foot blade ends in a long wickedly pointed tip The balance is great; it feels light in the hand. But, the exquisite sword-style hilt is entirely speculative and the sheath does not hang properly.
