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: Winged Broad Viking Spear

The pictures do no justice to how imposing this weapon is once mounted on a six foot pole. The craftmanship seems to be all I've come to expect from Windlass; the socket is well formed and smooth, so it was easy to mount. It needs a good sharpening (as stated), but once that is complete, this will be one dangerous fighting spear.

Review of: Huntsman's Hadseax

No Viking or Saxon would be without a utility knife hanging from their belt, and this one looks great doing it. A great utility hadseax, fully functional as well as a perfect accessory for a Viking-era/Saxon outfit. The fit and finish is outstanding. The blade and pommel are tight, and the bone spacers mate well with wood handle, with no wiggles or hot spots. The blade on mine came quite sharp, sharp enough to cut meat for and at dinner and several Renaissance Festival days as well. The sheath is just as nice as the pictures portray. This is definitely one of my favorite recent purchases, and has been the perfect functional finishing touch for several outfits.

Review of: Voyager Scramasax

This is a great little knife. Super stabby/acute point.. Tight fit on all the parts. Though there is no guard the cross hatching on the bone handle provides a excellent no-slip grip. The antique finish is great. Since it is a friction fit sheath the lanyard ring really helps because only about about 1-1/2" of the handle sticks out of the sheath. My only problem with this knife is we are so used to the blade edge going to the rounded side of the sheath occasionally I try to put it in upside down or is it down side up. Ha ha!

Review of: Royal Stag Seax

So to start off I love the feel of this seax.  A little heavier then I expected but not bad.  Fit and finish is very nice.  fits very nicely in the the Sheath.  Just so all understand what you see in the picture is what you get with the blade but each and every Stag handle will be different.  Mine is much straight not bad just different from what you see.  All and all I would buy again.

Review of: Huntsman's Hadseax

For anyone who loves their Scandanavian heritage or just wishes to add a little uniqueness to their edc knives, this one certainly bears consideration! I purchased this knife only a couple of weeks ago using the sezzle option (thank you for that is has been seamless)and it arrived this morning perfectly packaged and protected.  The pictures truly do not do this knife justice.  When purchasing online with only professional pictures to go by, sometimes you can't be sure, but this is a beautiful little knife. The wood grain on the handle was a tad darker than the pics which was fine with me and the bone spacers are spot on.  All of the metal fittings are well finished and tight.  No rattling blade or fittings here.  The blade is well polished and finished and even the fullers have been expertly polished.  The blade does come sharp however the edge really begins about half way down the blade with the edge closer to the handle somewhat more dull.  This isn't really an issue to me as I was going to reprofile it anyway.  This knife has a very nice weight to it.  Substantial enough to let you know its there and made well out of good materials but not so much that you cannot carry and use it all day long.  As for the using, the checkered bone spacers surprisingly can act as jimping.  I place my thumb on the forward spacer to practice some finer cutting and that spacer locked my thumb in just fine.  Nice surprise.  The sheath.  It is simply beautiful. The pictures DO NOT do this justice. It is fashioned of real leather and the decorations are just beautiful.  The aged brass components are strong and well finished and the sheath itsself holds the knife snugly without making the draw difficult.  A little waterproofing and it will be ready to go.  I only really had one complaint ( and I REALLY am digging here) that the ring on the pommel was quite loud. If I took this hunting as is I could be heard for quite a ways.  I removed it and added my own leather cord with some bronze beads.  As to my qualifications, I have studied martial arts(filipino/indonesian) for just over 20 years and HEMA for the last 3.  I am no stranger to knives (to the distress of my wife) I own quite a few custom and higher end knives as well.  Saying that, I really do like this little knife and feel it is well made and I am looking forward to my journey with it.  Thank you.

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.
