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. Vikings primarily wielded swords with one hand while using the other to hold a shield during battles. A sword was frequently a symbol of wealth and power in addition to being a weapon.

As early as the sixth century A.D., people used Skeggx, which derives its name from Old Norse "Skegg" meaning "beard" and "x" meaning "axe," as both tools and weapons. The Viking Age Scandinavians are most often associated with the use of Skeggx. People either locally made or imported Skeggx from the Frankish Empire. Pattern welding sometimes adorned the blades. Moreover, precious stones adorned the hilt of the axe.
The Vikings commonly carried axes that they could either throw or swing, dealing their enemies a devastating force that crushed their heads. 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.
