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.

Well made and finely decorated. Smaller than I was expecting, but sharp and balanced. Worth the buy.

Review of: Nordic Mora Fixed Blade Knife

I ordered this knife to be an addition to my pirate or Scottish Ren Fest garb, and I am not disappointed in the slightest. The knife and sheath are great and excellent quality for the price. A quick run on some sharpening steel and this thing is as fine as my best cheese knife. The small belt loop won't fit my pirate belt, but it's a great excuse to wear multiple belts when I go "full pirate" now.
My only real complaint - and it's incredibly minor! - is mine didn't come with the faux-fur-lined box. But honestly? I don't even know where I'd store the box if I had it. And I have an entire box already dedicated to my Ren Fest kit, so I don't even care.
It's a great little knife and fits perfectly with my "simpler is better" aesthetic for blades

Review of: Viking Throwing Axe Replacement Handle

When I bought the engraved Viking axe-head, I went ahead and bought this extra wooden shaft in case the first one was damaged somehow or came loose and could not be fixed.  I just love that such items are made available for weapons that could actually break during use.  It also came with a stained wooden sheave that you can slice off a bit to hammer into the top of the wooden handle to tighten the shaft part inside of the axe-head.  This shows foresight, and I appreciate things like that as I like to be prepared for things that might logically go wrong over time. Very nice.

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.

This spear head is excellent! Very well executed. Could even use as a sword in a pinch.

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
