⚔️ NORSE SPIRIT - This sword is named Helbítr, meaning hell biter in the Old Norse language. Drawing inspiration from 11th century Viking artifacts, this Viking replica sword features a semi-sharp blade, an ornate brass hilt and a genuine leather wrapped wooden shoulder scabbard.

⚔️ SOLID CRAFTSMANSHIP- Constructed to last and designed to function, each hand-forged Viking sword features a semi-sharp, double-edged blade which has been given an excellent heat treatment to achieve a 56-58 Rockwell scale hardness. This sword is no toy. Blade is full tang, meaning that the blade and handle are made from one continuous piece of steel with no welding. This is the technique favored by all true weapons makers.

⚔️ SHOULDER-STRAP SCABBARD - Each sword comes with a genuine cowhide wrapped baldric (shoulder-strap sheath). The belt of the scabbard is adjustable, so you can adjust easily as per your body size. Each piece is made and assembled by hand. The scabbard is constructed from high quality wood and wrapped in genuine brown cowhide leather. Recognize the incredible quality with a simple touch or glance.

I think they are a really good sword temper is almost perfect I actually bought two of them one was carbon and one was spring steel and I think they are very nice and excellent and exactly what I wanted

Helbitr has Heft

Handsome and seemingly accurate rendering of a viking age sword. It's got some heft, with the more of its weight in the latter half of blade. I guess that is good for the downward strikes, but it disadvantages the upward swings and straight thrusts. Perhaps this is what some Vikings may have preferred. Well made and rugged with a fine, semi-sharp blade.


Extremely well made and presented…one very happy customer

Hellbitr is a Fine Blade!

I am very happy with the sword—a 62nd birthday present. Yes, I’m still plundering at this age! It is heavy and stout and nicely crafted. There are some very minor scratches on the blade itself. However, I want it to look real & authentic—not like a sword that was just manufactured. So some insignificant “imperfections” are fine with me. I like the scabbard and belt, however as some have mentioned, the sword is loose in the scabbard—wish it were a snugger fit. I will figure out some way to achieve that. I looked at a lot of swords online, including significantly more expensive ones, and this one is a winner. Very happy to wield it!

10th Century Sword Replica

This is the third replica weapon and second sword, inspired by 10th and 11th century Viking artifacts, that I have purchased through Norse Tradesman. I am pleased with the look and feel of these display replicas; they are well-made and “as promised” in the website descriptions. The “semi-sharp” blades arrived in excellent condition, protected by oil from rust during shipping. The wood and leather parts also arrived well protected from shipping damage and in excellent condition; the swords look as though a Viking berserker could grab them and head out to pillage coastal villages! I will not hesitate to purchase more items from Norse Tradesman in the future. Highly recommend these replicas for the use intended.
