Collection: Viking Battle Axe

Viking Battle Axe

At Drakka, our designs are influenced by historic medieval fashions. A Viking battle axe was among the most effective and potent offensive weapons a Viking warrior could possess. The majority of Viking swords were designed to be wielded with one hand while the other held a shield. A sword was frequently a symbol of wealth and power in addition to being a weapon.

Excellent costume Viking sword perfect for theatrical performances, Halloween parties, costume plays, and more. The sword is ideal for Renaissance festivals, backyard brawls, LARP events, and historical reenactments.

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, the blades were adorned with pattern welding. The hilt of the axe is adorned with precious stones.

Commonly, Vikings carried axes that could be thrown or swung with head-crushing force. The Mammen Axe is a well-known example of such throwing and melee combat-optimized battle axes. The majority of an axe's head was wrought iron, with a steel cutting edge. During the early part of the Viking era, the cutting edge was typically 7 to 15 centimeters (3-6 inches) long, whereas later on, axes grew significantly larger. Brei-x (broad axes) had crescent-shaped edges ranging in length from 22 to 45cm (9-18in). The longest cutting edge of the largest axe head pictured to the right is 22 centimeters (9 inches) long.
