Viking reenactment activities are enjoyed by a growing community of people who honor, learn from and recreate the culture of the Viking Age through reenactment. The Viking Age in Scandinavian history spanned from the 790s, which is the timeframe of the earlier recorded raids, to 1066 upon the Norman conquest of England.
Interestingly, the knives and axes used during the Viking Age are very specific. For example, the Norse Dragon Seax Knife is a tribute to Viking era knives. Seax is the Old English word for knife. This long and gorgeous Viking Seax, or knife, features inscriptions of runes and Celtic knotwork pattern embellishments. The Norse New Dragon Knife has a shorter blade styled in the classic puukko profile. Viking axes were crafted for building and as common weapons and were specifically designed for such usage. Knives of the North sells a variety of Viking reenactment axes that function well for building a boat or stealing one! These modern-day Viking era replicas – Viking Tomahawk Axe, Viking Shipbuilders Axe, Viking Bearded Axe - are often the axe of choice for contemporary axe throwing.
