I saw this sword first, and it's the one that brought me to Battling Blades site. Ended up purchasing this one and 2 other different Viking Swords. This one arrived 1st and I am very please with it. I hope the other 2 are just as high quality and impress me the way this one does. I will leave reviews on the others as they arrive. The quality and craftsmanship are top notch and the service from Battling Blades is professional and communication has been excellent! Pleasantly surprised thus far would be an understatement. I hope the other items purchased leave me with the same outlook and overall experience buying from this company. I also got the Viking Battle Axe. and can't wait to see it also! If you are thinking about getting this sword, go for it! You won't be sorry!
I ordered one for my boyfriend last Christmas and he loves it. He has a nice collection of blades but that is the one he shows to everyone when they come over. I think it might be his favorite one so far. I will be ordering him another one for Christmas this year that way he has a set.
Great things take time. This was worth the wait. All who lay eyes on it have nothing but compliments and that nod of approval that it's a spectacular product. I will be purchasing another blade from battling blades.
Its a nice looking blade for the money. I dont know how tough it is as I'm not going to test it out and hurt it.
The owner of this business are very professional and reliable as well. I spoke a few times with a gentleman named Brian who had every time answered my questions clearly and overall provided for a good order experience. The blade came in and is forged for durability and with upmost care. Definitely recommend this purchase.
It was more than I expected it would be it’s an awesome weapon I only wish I knew how to use it like knights of the days past
It is simple get what you pay for and enjoy the art of the product, if you want higher quality it would cost hundreds more for something that you would never use how intended. Would buy from again!
I had Brian update me constantly as I was waiting and he was always patient and kept me informed throughout the building process. The sword is beautiful. I feel the power of the Gods in it! Seriously buy these swords like right now!
The sword stands are a bit too wobbly to be great but at free you can't beat the price
The sword is great. One of 12 swords I have purchased ,at BB.Brian is always so helpful, and they ship right away. Another must, for any collection.
Had a minor issue with the first sword they sent me, the company paid for it to return and rectified the situation with a new sword. Would do business with again, the sword is awesome!
I purchased this sword, and could not be more pleased! It is exactly constructed to specifications although being hand made! Balanced perfectly, and exactly what I expected! Strong, durable, and plenty of flex to the blade, a true value for your money! I would recommend this sword to any serious collector, or enthusiast.
This came and my expectations were high due to the many reviews this got and I was not disappointed! It’s really solid and light, about three pounds, but feels really well made. When I first received it, there are little drips of what I can assume is rust, but can easily be removed with rust remover, metal polish, etc. The blade wasn’t super straight either, but it was pretty impressive for being handmade. The Damascus gives it a beautiful look and it definitely worth the price I paid. Good sword overall!
I was binge watching The Last Kingdom, (Viking invasion of England), and decided to look for a sword like the ones used on the show. Battling Blades had this sword that looked very authentic at an amazing sale price. I'm sure I could have spent three times as much and not been as happy with the product. The workmanship is very impressive; beautiful and strong, and very sharp! My wife doesn't really get it, but I think she appreciates that the castle now has one more line of defense.

I have bought three swords from Battling Blades and I love each one. The sheaths that are supplied are very high quality too. I will buy from these guys again.
Gurkha Kukri Knife-Stag Horn Handle - I recently purchased this and wanted to say it's absolutely gorgeous and exceeded my expectations. I was going to use it on a camping trip but it's so beautiful I'm displaying it in my library. I plan to buy more.
And then some. Seriously amazing knife. Perfect size and the people are great. I've ordered two pieces from here so far and expectations have been exceeded each time. Looking forward to my next purchase. Ps. My partner is trying to steal this knife so I'm gonna have to get her her own. Haha thanks guys
Honestly I wasn't expecting a ton out of this sword but when I got it I was surprised at how well it was put together. There are a few problems with the sword mainly the blade was sharpened unevenly so one side is a little off and there is some slight warping, then there is the cross guard which doesn't make contact with the blade at the top but that's really just a nit picky detail. The hardness of the blade is well done and the handle is very comfortable which some swords I have bought in the past did not do well. All problems listed are very minor and change very little about the sword overall if you're looking to buy a sword with decent quality at a fair price this is a good choice.
It's a very nice sword .I liked the fact that it csme sharpened and oiled.I'm very happy with the design and will be ordering more items from you in the future.
I bought this knife and ended up giving it to my friend, great craftsmanship, nice a sturdy. All around great knife
