Maldon Viking Sword
Windlass Steelcrafts

The Maldon Viking sword from Windlass Steelcrafts BattleCry collection is a light, agile and resilient fighting blade that captures nearly everything that made this style such a formidable and near legendary design. Created to deal with shields, mail and thick fur or leather armor, it was more than a match for any hand-weapon of its day. Its semi-rounded point was capable of forcefully biting into targets without snagging or catching while its well-honed edge, neither too wide nor too narrow, enabled the widest possible array of single-hand combination blows. Its snub-hilt with distinct lobed-pommel gave the wielder a snug grip facilitating a quick center-of-rotation easily manipulated for exceptionally versatile action. With its capacity for delivering rapid single-handed strikes, it was ideal for fighting armed with a shield but also highly effective when matched with a seax or even a hand-axe. This a sword well-suited to any hand. Given a unique shadowed hue, one can well imagine a blade like the Maldon purposely darkened for a Northern nighttime skirmish. Serving a pivotal part in Norse martial heritage, it's easy to see why this style was so feared and so influential. Includes a matching scabbard with belt stop, custom packaging and certificate of authenticity signed by each smith that touched your blade through every step of the forging process. Check out the complete BattleCry series.

Reliks Customer Reviews

Reviewed by owners of this product

"Well balanced sword. Historically accurate. One of my favorite to train with." - (5/5)


"The sword is average. A bit disappointed by the handle and the quality of it compared to the blade. " - (3/5)


"A good blade, well made and balanced. Hilt was a bit of a different matter, (mine came damaged, leather cord wrapping was peeling off) but thanks to Relik's excellent customer service, i was immediately sent a replacement, which had no flaws. Overall I would highly recommend this sword; good for practice, very blade-heavy and requires a bit of strength to wield effectively. Pairs well with an early viking round shield. Equally functionally capable, or resplendent if displayed." - (4/5)
