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: Round Ended Butt Cap

I used this butt cap along with the Viking spear tip and a 4-foot shaft. The finished spear is around 5 feet in length and thanks to this butt cap, the balance point is in the middle of the spear. This made for a very neutral and well-balanced spear. I drilled holes for retaining nails, and this cap looks great too.

Review of: Viking Spear

This is a stout and nicely finished spear tip. I'm mounting it on a 4-foot pole with a butt cap. It should make a very versatile short spear, and contrast nicely with my long-bladed hewing spear. As sharpening was unavailable, I just did it myself.

Review of: Flat Ended Butt Cap

I used this cap with the hewing spear tip and a 6-foot pole. I was concerned about adding more weight, but it actually feels lighter because the balance is so much improved! I think this brought the center of gravity of the long spear back about a foot. I drilled holes to match those on the hewing tip to secure it. Looks great too.

Review of: Long Bladed Hewing Spearhead

Excellent construction and finish. I mounted mine to a 6' hardwood pole, resulting in an overall length of just under 8 feet. When vertical, it barely fits inside a normal home interior! I wish I could post a photo of my finished spear because it looks great. Properly fitting the tip to a pole requires some work but I enjoyed it.

Because I couldn't find this info anywhere on the site: Yes, this fits the same 1-1/4" shaft as the other size hewing spear. The maximum interior diameter of the socket was about 1-1/8" with a depth of 5". There are two 1/8" holes on opposite sides of the socket for retaining screws/nails/whatever.

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.

Adds just the right protection and balance for the end of your spear. Couldn't ask for more.

Review of: Viking Throwing Spear

Though the long point would pierce right through a warrior, I see this as more of a fighting spear, than a throwing spear. The 1

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.
