Knives of the Avenger was a troubled production originally directed by Leopoldo Savona. Mario Bava entered into the production to complete it, rewriting and reshooting the film and finishing the production in six days.[2] Film historian Tim Lucas described Knives of the Avenger as a remake of the film Shane in a Viking setting.[3]

The film was shot at Titanus Studios in Rome.[2]


The Knives of the Avenger was released theatrically in Italy on 30 May 1966. It received a theatrical release in the United States in January 1968.[1] Knives of the Avenger was released on DVD by Image Entertainment on 26 June 2001.[4]


"Byro." of Variety declared the film "a real surprise: a beautifully designed and exciting Viking tale from pseudonymous Mario Bava. Only subject and cast make this a programmer - but it's a top one."[5]
