    Viking Sword Training

    Through my career as U.S.Marine I have trained with and mastered many weapons. I particuarly enjoy sword training with a Viking style sword. a 45 minute workout with a 2.8 pound sword can be quite invigorating.Of all my Viking Swords I have found the Sticklestad sword from Windlass to be the best (for me ) that I have ever used.Any Viking sword users out there and what type do you prefer?If you have made your own I would love to hear about it.

    I have made several viking swords,axes, seaxs, and spears. Right now I am making a early viking seax and will start posting pics soon. The balance and quality of early Germanic weapons is unsurpassed.

    However they take weeks and months to make.

    What do you do with the weapons that you make? Do you have a shop or anything?

    I sell most of them and few I give as gifts. My outlet for weapons are few but have been increasing. I have set up at gun and and knife shows and a few viking events. Also there is a man in Indianapolis that orders them sometimes, he sells or trades them to collectors.

    Compared to the other things I make I don't make very many weapons. They take to much time. The last seax I made took me about 30 hours just to make the blade and about twice that much in the handle. If I had different tooling it would be much faster.
