Viking Swords

Viking swords were expensive to make. They were typically double edged, but single-edged swords were also used. The blades were pattern-welded, a method of sword making where iron and steel were forge-welded together. Together with weapons such as the battle-axe and the spear, the sword was one of the most useful offensive tools for a Viking warrior. Viking swords were typically meant for single-handed use, with the other hand holding a shield. They were more than mere weapons of combat; a sword often indicated wealth and status. Also, these blades were heirlooms and given names and survived generations.

Museum Replicas is proud of the variety of swords it offers. We carry a stunning range of Viking swords that would suit both the standard warrior and Viking royalty. We also understand that no Viking sword collection is complete without the Ulfberht, a weapon so ahead of its time it was considered mystical in some quarters. Our amazing replica does this sword justice. Also, check out the Migration Period Sword based on a 7th-century design and Eric the Red Sword that is inspired by the legendary Norwegian Viking. Of course, we have much more in this collection – blades forged with expert hands and with detail exquisite enough to turn the head of even the most battle-hardened Norse warrior.

Although an authentic Viking sword is hard to come by, we will give you premium-quality weapon replica derived from those wielded by the most terrifying seafarers in history.

Review of: The Viking Explorer Box

First off i will state that for one a few dollars more than the sword you get everything else!  The horn is excellent, with nice and crisp carvings. The coins have some heft to them but don't seem to hold their coloring very well. The purse is very well constructed. And not to leave out the Ashdown, A wonderful sword to be added to any collection.

Review of: Leif Erikson Sword

well made genuine replica, love windlass!! only complaint is that im so used to owning greek and Roman swords, that the details and design are different and take some getting used to. very pleased with this magically ornate malee weopon that ruled  dark age Europe.

Review of: Leif Erikson Sword

Another fine blade I wish was for myself, as it was a gift for a friend as well. The additional sharpening and engraving came out terrific as usual, options I always opt for if available. A very fine blade that was beautifully crafted with a scabbard and belting that astonished my friend upon receiving it! Go for it, you will not be sorry!!!

Review of: Ashdown Viking Sword

The sword is beautiful I can find no flaws whatsoever, straight and true. I wanted a real, true to period practical fighting sword that looks and feels like it could be swung in a hard fought protracted battle. This is it. The grip is big and comfortable, the sword seems well balanced and truly formidable. The scabboard is solid, well appointed and adds to the overall appeal of the sword. My only complaint is that I paid to have it engraved with my initials and it didn’t get done.

I just got this sword and I have to say, I was really surprised how great this sword felt in my hand. The grip was big enough for even my "ham hock" size hand! LOL i ordered it sharpened and I think I can shave with this thing, too. Great quality and awesome piece for the price! Thanks!

Jazz'd with my new Battlecry Maldon Viking Sword.  It's very attractive, and the craftsmanship (by an artist named Kalish) is flawless from pommel to point.  - Mitchell

Review of: Battlecry Maldon Viking Sword

Very pleased with this sword.  Many time have been disapointed by windlass... with defective sword.  With them you get a hit or a miss.  I got a hit with the Maldon sword.   Very well made and the blade patina is incredible.   Very attractive
