This ‘’Munitions Grade” item is not up to our normal high standards. Munitions grade items will typically have various bends or twists in the blades, basically rendering them as 2nds quality. These items are still a great choice for collecting and re-enacting and functional pieces will still be functional. Please keep this in mind when ordering.

The large axes favored by Vikings are a brutal weapon, but in the hands of the skilled they are surprisingly agile and resourceful weapons. The wide blade often forms a crook-like ‘’beard’’ that offers many uses for a cunning Viking; he can use that hook to catch the rim of a shield to pull it away or sweep behind his foe and catch his leg, throwing him off balance. 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!

Heavily embellished axes have been found, adorned with all the swirling, knotted motifs befitting the Norse and some are even inlaid with precious metals. Evidence seems to suggest that these axes were limited to being ceremonial items.

This Viking Axe by Deepeeka features etched designs on both sides reminiscent of these finds. The axe head is made crafted of thick high carbon steel and is riveted to a thick, stained wooden haft. This is a big axe with a burly, blunted steel head and thick haft. The axe head is 11 mm thick close to the haft and tapers to 6mm closer to the edge.
