  • 5 Lobe Viking Sword

    Certain Viking swords that have become famous were splendidly decorated or have some other special feature. Those weapons belonged to high ranking warriors or kings, but what about the simple fighters, the mass of Vikings whose reputation struck fear into the hearts of Europe? Our sword is designed for the hordes, the common warriors. It is a well-balanced weapon without a lot of extra features, simple and effective, just like it should be. The wooden grip is wrapped in black leather. The slightly curved pommel combined with the 5-lobed crossguard of high-quality steel makes this sword a classic type VI in Wheeler's Viking sword typology. Comes complete with a leather scabbard.

  • Damascus Viking Sword

    Excavations of a number of circa 850-900 Viking swords turned up this lovely Damascus specimen in Finland. It has the lobed pommel loved by the Norsemen, but the cross guard contrasts slightly with the typical downcurved versions. The early style blade is well-suited to the quick, slashing blows of the Viking warrior. It is forged from high carbon Damascus steel. It is polished with the fuller etched to show the Damascus construction of the blade. The pommel and cross guard are steel and the grip is leather wrapped wood. The scabbard is wood covered in leather with steel mounts. This is a true fighting sword and one that any Viking would be proud to carry in battle.

  • Sticklestad Viking Sword

    On July 29, 1030, Christian King Olaf and his men faced the mighty army of their heathen opponents – which was double the size – on the battlefield at Stiklestad in Norway (90 km north of Trondheim). Olaf fell, but his army was victorious. The Christianization of Norway could begin!

    The wonderful Viking sword now called Sticklestad was the type used at this famous battle. It was as effective for cuts as it was for thrusts, which means it was the perfect sword for close combat. The wide fuller on both sides makes this edged weapon lightweight. The sword handles like an extension of your arm. The wooden grip is wrapped in suede for better manageability and it comes with a handsome, matching scabbard. The copper-filled pattern on the crossguard and five-lobed pommel give the hilt of our Sticklestad Viking sword a squat, powerful look.

  • Stage Combat Hersir Viking Sword

    Our Stage Combat swords feature tempered, high carbon steel blades and are designed for light combat use. They have durable, thick edges, more than suitable for the rigours of stage combat and display fights. They also feature rounded tips for extra safety. Stage Combat swords are noticeably heavier than historical replicas due to the added weight afforded by the thicker edges. These swords are not designed for re-enactment use.

    Our Hersir Viking Sword is a historically accurate replica of a Viking Sword. This style of Viking era sword is referred to as a Type H hilt in Petersen's Typology and has a triangular pommel. It seems this type is typically thought to have been found extensively in Norway, but as far south as Switzerland and Yugoslavia, and that the type H seems to have been in use about latter 8th c. to into the 10th. 

    Overall Length: 97.5cm
    Blade Length: 79cm
    Blade Width: 5.7cm

  • Norwegian Viking Sword

    This sword is a near perfect replica of one from the National Museum in Copenhagen. This style of hilt type was most commonly produced Norway so it is likely this sword is of Norwegian origin. The pommel and guard are somewhat massive compared to many other Nordic swords, but are far from being too heavy and give the sword a very solid and well-balanced feel in the hand. The well-tempered blade is deeply fullered and has a good spring. The Norwegian Viking Sword has a high carbon steel blade and comes complete with a leather scabbard featuring decorative leather applications.

  • Isle of Eigg Viking Sword

    The hilt of the Isle of Eigg Sword is the finest example of a Viking sword hilt ever found in Scotland and currently resides on the National Museums of Scotland collection. It was discovered on the island of Eigg in the Inner Hebrides by a local farmer whilst levelling a mound.

The unsharpened blade is made of well-tempered mild steel and is peened at the pommel for durability. It comes complete with a leather-wrapped wooden scabbard with similar bronze fittings.
