Viking Halberd

special price

Out of stock


One of the more deadly weapons used by the Vikings was the halberd, or bill as it was sometimes referred to. It is generally agreed that the actual Viking term was mail piercer. Sadly there are none known to exist, so this reconstruction is based on details of various sagas and on a few axes that are known to have blades "like a halberd". This weapon was a favorite of Gunnar of Hildebrand, Thorolf Skallagrimsson, Egill Skallagrimsson and many other Viking warriors. In one battle Thorolf loses his temper, takes his halberd in both hands, and starts cutting down the enemy. He fights his way to the standard, cuts down the standard bearer, cuts the standard pole in half, then stabs the Earl through his body.  He then lifts him up by the blade and jams the staff into the ground so that the Earl dies for all to see. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts® from high carbon steel. This is a must for any of those interested in the viking warriors of the North.


For the sale price of $60, this piece is a good buy.  Mine showed up covered in mold and mildew so it received a soap bath and an immediate oiling.  The stain on the pole comes off quite easily and after handling, washing hand is a must to get the stain off.  Still though, as a hanging piece, it's nice.

Medieval Double Wrap Belt

From the early B.C. Celts to well past the Renaissance, warriors figured out that a double wrap belt was a more comfortable way to carry a sword. But it was in Medieval times that the practice really flourished. When the extra length of belt wraps around a body the second time, both hips then support the weight of the sword. Besides the balanced suspension, this belt presents a swashbuckling appearance. Includes a frog hanger that will fit all scabbards. Made of beautiful top grade leather it is 1-3/4" wide. The Medieval Belt is available in brown with brass or black with nickel silver studs and buckle. Choose from S (28"-35"), M (33"-40"), L (38"-45") or XL 43" - 50"). All sizes are approximate.
