Viking Knives, Axes & 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

I'd been looking at the Maldon Sword and matching Maldon Seax for quite some time before finally buying both to add to my collection. They arrived quickly and were well-packaged. Both are solidly constructed, well-balanced, and beautiful to look at. Both scabbards came with a nice leather frog, which was a pleasant surprise. Both blades are also very sharp and I can't wait to do some test cutting with them! Well worth the money!

Review of: Long Bladed Hewing Spearhead

Nice heavy spear.   Broader, longer, blade than average.  Still a bit awkward for "hewing" on a full length shaft, but I see where the thinking was going with it.  I would maybe try it on a shorter shaft if I really wanted to slash with it, although a naginata, glaive, or other polearm would do that job much better.  I'll keep it as a heavy spear, it's very good in that role!

Review of: Flat Ended Butt Cap

Functions perfectly as a counterbalance to any spearhead.  Makes wielding a spear much easier and more effective.  Also helpful in grounding the spear, or as a non lethal striking surface

Review of: Viking Throwing Spear

Longer and slimmer than the regular Viking spearhead, this is a great item.  Excellent for piercing.  To be honest, I'm afraid that if thrown, the blade looks like it might bend if it hits something hard, so I haven't tried.  I love it as a regular spear.  Highly recommended for that purpose.

Review of: Viking Throwing Spear

This spear head is excellent! Very well executed. Could even use as a sword in a pinch.

Review of: Hewing Spearhead

Nice heavy long spear head.  The socket extends right into the spear head which is a lot stronger then a lot of the Windlass spear heads.  Most of the spear heads on the market have a socket that ends before the actual blade.  This provides a weak area right below the head.  This design is much stronger.

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.
