Description

Longships have a long history in Scandinavia, with their existence dating back to the fourth century BC, being widespread used by the Vikings for commerce, exploration, and warfare.


Mightiest of all the Longships stood the Drakar, meaning dragon in old Norse. It was named for the carvings of dragon heads at either end, but what made the ship a favorite was its size: it had upwards to thirty rowing benches, with two rowers per bench, with the largest ones being able to carry more than 100 warriors. The large capacity both for men and for cargo, made the elegant and ornately decorated ships the Viking’s favorite for raiding and plundering, an icon into itself.

The weapon of choice of the Viking Warrior, the Axe was the workhorse of the Norse culture. Not only deadly in combat, the axe also doubled as a multipurpose tool: from chopping wood, to building boats and houses, to beheading enemies.



The hair clasp is made from solid Zinc Alloy, which results in a piece of very high quality jewelry.
