Our designs at Drakka are influenced by medieval attire from the past. This Viking axe for sale was one of the strongest and most effective offensive weapons a Viking warrior could possess. The majority of Viking swords were intended to be wielded with one hand while a shield was held in the other. In addition to being a weapon, a sword often symbolized wealth and power.
Skeggx (from Old Norse Skegg, "beard," and x, "axe") refers to various axes used as tools and weapons as early as the sixth century A.D. It is most commonly associated with Scandinavians of the Viking Age. In general, they were either produced locally or imported from the Frankish Empire. On occasion, blades were adorned with pattern welding. The hilt of the axe is adorned with precious stones. The blade is highly polished and etched with runes that translate to "sword of kings."
Norsemen typically carried Viking axes capable of crushing the head when thrown or swung. The Mammen Axe is a well-known example of a throwing and melee-optimized axe. The majority of an axe's head was made of wrought iron, while the cutting edge was made of steel. During the early part of the Viking era, the length of the cutting edge was typically 7–15 centimeters (3-6 inches), whereas later on, axes grew considerably larger. Brei-x (broad axes) had crescent-shaped edges ranging in length from 22 to 45 cm (9 to 18 in). The longest cutting edge on the largest axe head pictured on the right is 22 centimeters (9 inches) long.
