Collection: Viking Axes
Our designs at Drakka are influenced by historic medieval attire. A Viking axe was one of the most powerful and effective offensive weapons a Viking warrior could possess. The majority of Viking swords were designed to be wielded with one hand while holding a shield with the other. In addition to being a weapon, a sword frequently represented wealth and authority.
Skeggx (from Old Norse Skegg, "beard," and x, "axe") refers to various axes used as early as the sixth century A.D. as both tools and weapons. It is most commonly associated with Viking-age Scandinavians. Generally speaking, they were either locally produced or imported from the Frankish Empire. Occasionally, the blades were embellished with pattern welding. The axe's hilt is embellished with precious stones. The blade is polished to a mirror finish and incised with runes that translate to "sword of kings."
Norsemen typically carried Viking axes that could be thrown or swung with head-crushing force. The Mammen Axe is a well-known example of an axe optimized for throwing and melee combat. The majority of the head of an axe was composed of wrought iron, with a steel cutting edge. During the early part of the Viking era, the typical length of the cutting edge was 7–15 centimeters (3-6 inches), whereas later on, axes grew considerably larger. Brei-x (broad axes) had crescent-shaped edges measuring 22 to 45 cm in length (9 to 18 in). On the largest axe head shown on the right, the longest cutting edge is 22 centimeters (9 inches) long.
