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 bought this to cap the end of my spear.  Good for protecting the spear's base and gives it a more finished look. I will probably buy another for the end of my poleaxe.

Review of: Round Ended Butt Cap

This is a pretty simple item with a pretty simple purpose which it fulfills quite nicely.
The Buttcap fits nicely on most shafts and is excellently constructed. The price is very fair as well. It does not have any pre-drilled holes in it, so do keep that in mind when if intend to mount it.

Review of: Round Ended Butt Cap

This should be a requirement for most reenactors that will subject their weapon to real life battle ground exposure. Any other surface beyond bare grass will cause wear to the wooden end of the spear, and sooner or later you will have to shorten the spear to repair the worn area of the shaft. Pop one of these on the bottom and problem solved. Looks great, being of the same material as the spearheads, and is heavy enough that it should outlast me.

Review of: Viking Spear

First of all the point is very sharp so please handle it with that in mind. The overall style is easily generic to many time periods. Tough steel. Feels very solid. I mounted mine on a hardwood shaft using epoxy. It has holes in it ready for rivets or other metal fasteners to mechanically attach it. Would buy again if needed, but I feel the quality of it will outlast any need for replacement.

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
