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: 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

Though the long point would pierce right through a warrior, I see this as more of a fighting spear, than a throwing spear. The 1

Review of: Battlecry 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: 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 Seax is a real beauty and is a great addition to the weapons wall at my place. With that said the sheath is not great by any standards. But I say I will make my own with no real complaints. I really like this Seax so 5 Stars in a Z formation!!!
