During the Viking Age, a raider owning a sword was a matter of prestige, since only free men were allowed to carry weapons. Viking blades were typically single-handed swords used along with a shield. Blades ranged from 23 to 37 inches in length, and the shape resembled many other weapons of the Dark Ages. Many featured deep fullers and lobed pommels. At Medieval Collectables, we are proud to carry an excellent variety of Norman, Viking, and Anglo-Saxon swords inspired by the weapons wielded by these ancient warriors. Our inventory includes single- and double-handed sword designs, Nordic short swords, and warrior broadswords. We carry Viking swords specific to the 7th through 11th centuries, including sword reproductions modeled on blades held in museums like the Cawood sword, Trondheim sword, Leuterit sword, Korsoygaden sword, Suontaka sword, and others. Other designs are named for historical figures, such as the Godfred sword, Ulfbert sword, and Erik the Red sword. We carry functional swords and decorative swords, ensuring that you can find blades for re-enactors, WMA combatants, theatrical performers, or collectors.
