Viking swords were expensive and time consuming to make. They were typically double edged, but single-edged swords were not unknown. The blades were pattern-welded, a method of sword making where iron and steel were forge-welded together. Together with weapons such as the axe, seax and 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 stout round 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.
Atlanta Cutlery 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.

Just received mine today. Nice feel. Quality built. Good balance. Good finish. Seems to have good temper. I ordered it sharpened and it did come sharp. I have many Windlass swords in my collection. I plan to display instead of use this sword. I also bought the shield. It is also a well built product.
