The story of Drakkar Viking 

The Drakkar, or Viking Longships, were the long, narrow and very flexible vessels used by the Vikings for trade, exploration, and warfare. The Longships had symmetrical ends and a maximal speed of around 15 knots, and they were also called "dragonships" because they often had a dragon-shaped bow or other magical beings carved on it. The Longships had been the symbol of the Vikings naval power for a long time, ranging in the North and Baltic Sea and even far from their Scandinavian homelands: to Iceland, Greenland, Northern America and the Mediterranean!

 

Product description

  • Material: high-grade wood such as: western red cedar, rosewood, and mahogany + metal only (no plastic parts)
  • Skill: best traditional real ship-making methods applied, hundreds of hours required to finish each model by our master craftsmen

Company profile

Every ship has a story. From bow to stern, star board to port side, every vessel carries its own exquisite history. Through our fine hand craftsmanship, we tell that story the way it deserves to be told – with heart and soul. We uses traditional methods of building ship models, while integrating modern innovations. Our master craftsmen in Vietnam construct each ship entirely by hand using the traditional plank-on-bulk head method. They then harness high-tech tools like laser machines to create fine, accurate details. Each ship is scaled down in precise proportions from the original model for authenticity. It is a masterful synthesis of modern and traditional methods that makes the Old Modern quality one of a kind. What we mean by quality you can trust:

● Extensive research through original plans and pictures makes our models true to life.

● 100% hand-built from scratch, plank by plank.

● Hundreds of hours of work go into our museum-quality models.

● Made of quality wood such as western red cedar, mahogany, rosewood, teak, and more

● Chrome, brass, and cast metal fittings and ornaments add richness and verisimilitude

● Each model must pass a demanding quality control process before leaving the workshop and making its voyage to you. Old Modern Handicrafts carries all manner of ships from every age of sail, and we are also proud to build custom models for our customers.
