At Drakka Viking Shields, we are first of all shield craftsmen. We work with wood, we forge steel and we hammer iron. We live in our workshops, among the sawdust and clangor of hammers. We take great pride in our work.
We are Norsemen.

The Vikings were much more than the barbarians history has depicted them as. There is no doubt that they were incredible craftsmen based on some of the jewelry that has been discovered. They were also great traders and lovers of good things in life, refined spices, clothes, and furs.
Viking sagas reveal the importance of honor and poetry to these fascinating people. Our mission is to dismantle some of the stereotypical information and stereotypes about the Vikings.
If you haven't already, we recommend reading Beowulf or the Volsung Saga or Hrolf Kraki to learn more about the Viking Age. Each of these sagas is filled with stories of honor, courage, magic, and even monsters. It is likely that those sagas are better than any contemporary science fiction, and certainly many ideas for modern science fiction can be found in them. As you read more, it becomes apparent how heroic and honorable these people were.
Please contact us if you have questions, if you would like to see an item we don't offer, or if you'd like to discuss the fascinating history of the Viking people.
