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: Frankish Axe

This is my go-to Ren Faire axe.  It is sturdy, good looking, and goes well with my ranger outfit.  Excellent price too.

Review of: Seax

This was a great little blade for my husband's birthday! He really loves it and enjoys using it. It's been a source of pride for him.
Word of advice...if you're going to have any blades sharpened, make sure to give the order a little extra time. It's well worth the wait. They do a masterful job. But if you're giving it as a gift, it does take an extra few days or longer.

Review of: Maldon Seax

It's light and fast in the hand. Not real sharp but good edge retention... has more of a useable edge. Love the patina, not some people's cup of tea true, but there are some historical sources for such look for the blade. The grip is Good, not a real tight weave, but it does feel good in the hand. Overall this is a 5 star value for the price. Now I need his big brother lol

Review of: Crecy War Dagger

I picked this dagger up to fill a void in my collection and to see if I would be interested in other Battlecry weapons.

I would say it is impressive. The balance is good, and the edge is strong. It is well built and solid even after taking a couple good hits and being dropped. The scabbard is above expectation and the frog it came with is far better than expected.

There is considerable bang for your buck with this dagger, it has the looks and the function.

Review of: Maldon Seax

I had my eye on this for a while and finally bought it. I must say it is the finest reproduction SEAX on the market without going to a custom knife maker or bladesmith. A very solid piece encased in a nice sheath. I'm glad I discovered this new line!

Review of: Viking Throwing Axe

With the neo-Viking engraving on the head, I was definitely not expecting this axe to be so solid. Sharper than I expected as well, took a beating with no looseness in the handle. I'm not that great at throwing, but was able to stick 7 out of 12 throws right from the box!

Review of: Runic Long Seax

This is a beautiful Seax, longer than most and marked with the Runic alphabet. The sheath is better than most from Windlass but still not the best. Very happy with this purchase!

Review of: Hewing Spearhead

I have been looking at both hewing spears versions for some time. When this variant came up on Deal of the Day, I pulled the trigger on two of them. Even if never used in real life, I like for all my weapons to be battle ready, rather than just accurate 'facsimiles'.

To bring them up to their full battle potential, I shipped them to Razor Edge Sharpening in Laguna Niguel, CA (https://www.razoredgesharpening.com/).

Review of: Long Bladed Hewing Spearhead

Mounted on a 5' shaft of hardwood, along with the tapered butt-cap.....absolutely incredible weapon.  Or.....get two and mount them both on a short haft. Be the Viking equivalent of Darth Maul!!!
