This particular Viking axe is known as a bearded axe because of its elongated lower edge and curved blade, which enabled downward blows. In battle, Vikings threw axes as though they were missiles, and used the lower portion of the axe blade to hook necks and ankles. This replica of a traditional Viking battle axe is made from only the finest materials. The axe head is forged from high-quality carbon steel with a gleaming polished finish. Engraved on both sides of the axe head is a beautiful and elegant motif, similar to decorations that have been found adorned on authentic Viking axes. The handle is made from durable sheesham heartwood that has been sanded and contoured for a smooth touch and better grip. Engraved on either side of the handle is a decorative feather design.

Features:

Axe Head Length: 6.25 / Blade Length: 5.25 inches | Handle Length: 19.5 inches / Handle Width: 1.5 inches | Axe Head Material: Carbon Steel / Polished Finish | Handle Material: Sheesham Wood | Lanyard Hole

Unless indicated differently in each product description, our shields are made out of 15mm thick birch plywood and consolidated by a steel hand-hammered umbo and iron bolts.

Dimensions

Unless indicated otherwise, our shields have a 24 inches diameter (61 cm) and weights around 6.6 pounds (3 kg)
Because these are handmade products made with real wood blanks the sizes, textures and overall appearance may vary from the product photos and description. Some blanks might be smaller than anticipated, or larger sizes too thick to transport at a low cost. 

Care Instructions

We recommend applying three or four times per year some beeswax polish to protect the wood surface from moisture and sunlight. Apply the oil onto a lint-free cloth and rub into the wooden surface following the direction of the grain. Leave for 3-4 minutes and buff over with a clean cloth.
