Collection: Viking throwing axe
Certain historical Viking axes were also referred to as "Danish axes," an early type of polearm. Typically, Viking axes are light enough to withstand being thrown and are made with forged heads and hardened edges. Due to their relatively short cutting edges, other Viking axes were designed for punching through enemy armor or cleaving helms in close combat. Viking throwing axes were not only used in battle, but also on farms and for chopping wood for their ships. We stock a variety of Norse axes, such as Danish axes, Viking throwing axes, mammen axes, bearded axes, and Franciscan axes. We also offer replica Viking weapons inspired by the popular television series about the legendary Viking Ragnar Lothbrok. Many of our Viking axes are made with real designs and can be used in historical reenactments.
Drakka's Viking throwing axes are built to last and designed to perform; each hatchet has a hand-hammered head with a razor-sharp edge (56–58 Rockwell scale hardness). In addition, it has a hammer poll with a hardened face for driving in nails and stakes. Each weatherproof axe handle is crafted from a single piece of quality aged teakwood, one of the hardest and most resilient woods. The stained handle has an ergonomic curve that facilitates handling and creates a slight downward blade angle at the point of contact. The base features a lanyard hole as well.
