Viking Axes, Knives & 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 that movies often depict them with were developed later, perhaps around the 10th and 11th centuries. The Viking warrior could not fight with the broad, two handed 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.  Berserkers were a fearsome sight on the battlefield.

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 heads came in different shapes and sizes, with some exhibiting “wings” on them which prevented them from sinking too deep into a target for easier retrieval. 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.

Atlanta Cutlery has an excellent collection of Viking spearheads, 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: Battlecry Maldon Viking Seax

Well built very functional blade. Can chop small trees and brush. Can split kindling some. Can strip bark well, overall a pretty functional blade in the woods with a true Viking sword feel. Very glad I bought it.
