  • Sticklestad Viking Sword

    1 Review(s)

    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.
