Covid-19 Update
The shipment backlog from our shut down is pretty much caught up and we are essentially back to business as normal. The only exception is that we are not offering in person pick-up yet. We are also seeing some transit time delays with the shipping companies, especially internationally, so please keep that in mind. Otherwise we are working and ready to serve you.

While two-handed axes wielded by Vikings have a well-deserved reputation for brute ferocity, in the hands of a cunning Viking the large axe could be a surprisingly resourceful weapon. The wide blade forms a useful hook-shaped tool – A tricky Viking could bring his axe behind the ankle of an opponent to sweep him off his feet or the blade could be used to hook the edge of a shield to pull it from a foe’s grip. In the Sturlu saga, one Viking even uses his axe to hook behind the neck of his foe and then drag him to the ground. There is even evidence in one of the sagas of Vikings using their axes to hook onto the short wooden walls of a fort, and then haul themselves up and over with their axe handles!

This example, from Cold Steel is crafted from High Carbon steel and is sharpened for use. It comes with a varnished hickory shaft. This axe comes unassembled, and needs to be carefully mounted onto the haft and screwed into place with precision. Shaft, screws and assembly instructions included.
