The Maldon Viking sword from Windlass Steelcrafts Battlecry collection is a light, agile and resilient fighting blade that captures nearly everything that made this style a formidable and near legendary design. Created to deal with shields, mail, and thick fur or leather armor, it was more than a match for any hand weapon of its day.
The semi-rounded point was capable of forcefully biting into targets without snagging or catching, while its well-honed edge, neither too wide nor too narrow, enabled the widest possible array of single-hand combination blows. Its snub-hilt with distinct lobed-pommel gave the wielder a snug grip facilitating a quick center-of-rotation easily manipulated for exceptionally versatile action. With its capacity for delivering rapid single-handed strikes, it was ideal for fighting armed with a shield but also highly effective when matched with a seax or even a hand-axe. This a sword well-suited to any hand.
Given a unique shadowed hue, one can well imagine a blade like the Maldon purposely darkened for a Northern nighttime skirmish. Serving a pivotal part in Norse martial heritage, it's easy to see why this style was so feared and so influential. Includes a matching scabbard with belt stop, and certificate of authenticity signed by each smith that touched your blade through every step of the forging process.

Five Star Viking Sword
A Windlass home run.  The wrapped grip is very comfortable, and the balance lends itself nicely to swift cuts and recoveries.  The blade came sharp without a prominent secondary bevel, so it should be easy to re-sharpen, if necessary.  The dark finish looks far better in person than in the pictures, and gives it an ominous appearance to match its obvious, deadly, efficiency!

Excellent light well balanced sword
Excellent sword nice balance and very light in hand allowing for quick cuts and thrusts. This sword's Hilt Style is a Type U of 10th century Norwegian decent.  The blade is a Type X in the Oakeshott Typology or specifically a Type 3 in the Geibig Typology.  The sword is simple and well put together and the blued finish is well executed.

Great looking sword
Great looking sword, very well made and looks the part for for any re-enactor. The blackened finish is an interesting idea it certainly ages nicely. Just wish I could have worn it to our local renaissance faire but...........well 2020 happened!

Consistent Windlass Battlecry Quality
So far the Battlecry line from Windlass has exceeded all of  my expectations. Each piece has come in near perfect condition, sharp, straight, and ready to rumble. The Maldon Viking Sword is no exception. It stacks up well against any even remotely similarly priced replica on the market in terms of weight, handling, and aesthetic appeal (looks are subjective, I realize). Pics don't do justice to the quality of the "blue-ing" process on these blades. I've never seen anything like it! Well done.

Solid, great buy!
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!

This is my first purchase of an actual, non-display sword and I couldn't be happier.

Very Nice
The sword comes with a good edge and smooth finish, it is a bit blade heavy as this style of sword would be, and is not overly heavy. Very durable and would be hard to break.

Love this! Great customer service!
I bought this as a wedding gift for my now husband(we did an exchange of swords) and I cannot rave more about the quality of this sword, nor the customer service I had when placing the order! He is absolutely enthralled by the quality and perfection, as well as how well balanced if is, and how well it fits his grip. I'm so glad I chose this to present him with this sword and I know it's something that he'll forever be proud to show off!

Not bad at all.
"The sword I bought met all my expectations. The quality was actually nicer than I thought it would be for the price I paid. I was disappointed on two issues; I sent in a price match and was told it would be honored, it was not. The second issue was the sharpness of the blades. The Seax was quite sharp but the sword, not so much. I purchased the Maldon Viking sword and the matching Viking Seax. I will purchase here again."
