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 for men and women, 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 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: Voyager Scramasax

Whether sailing a restless sea, or fording an Amazon river, this blade bespeaks of the Viking thirst for adventure and exploration.  Excellent for general use, or as a camp knife for the Great Outdoors.

Review of: Wooden Viking Dragon Shield

This shield is Fantastic, it is the perfect weight and is very well made. However to be historically accurate the shield would have been warped with rawhide, or leather. This shield is much more detailed than the others, and you can tell it is hand painted.

This shield is Fantastic, it is the perfect weight and is very well made. However to be historically accurate the shield would have been warped with rawhide, or leather. Other than that it’s perfect!

Review of: The Viking Explorer Box

I got this kit as a gift and everything had great quality. I had some concerns about the sword due to a YouTube video I watched, but the sword was the diamond of the kit

Review of: Cawood Viking Sword by Paul Chen / Hanwei

This is an amazing replica! The sword is an absolute joy to look at, swing, cut and just plain enjoy. It came with a good edge right out of the box, but a few minutes with a whetstone put a great edge on it.
As soon as I picked the sword up, I knew that I was holding a fine sword. I could imagine what a 13th Century warrior felt as he (or she... Shield Maidens are historic fact) drew this weapon before battle. A certainty that THIS sword will serve well in the coming battle!
The balance is superb. Enough blade presence to let you make dynamic cuts yet feels light in hand and very responsive. The sword seems to almost lead you into the strike and follows every intention. The down-turned quillions give a distinct feel of defensive ability and the acute point makes this sword very capable of both cutting and thrusting making it a superb weapon in the melee. Easily one of the best swords available at any price!

Review of: The Viking Explorer Box

First off i will state that for one a few dollars more than the sword you get everything else!  The horn is excellent, with nice and crisp carvings. The coins have some heft to them but don't seem to hold their coloring very well. The purse is very well constructed. And not to leave out the Ashdown, A wonderful sword to be added to any collection.
