With our new state-of-the-art forging facility, we can now offer our customers something truly exceptional – a truly modern interpretation of the two handed Viking war axe! The result of several years of extensive development and refinement, our Viking Axe’s long blade is not a wood chopping tool, but rather it is a thin, fully polished and hand sharpened combative-style blade with a sharp edge that would be easily at home on a custom bowie knife! Its 10″ wide cutting surface terminates in two sharp “horns”. Traditionally, the longer top point was used for stabbing or parrying, while the slightly shorter bottom point was used by the Vikings to hook an opponent’s shield or limbs. Our Viking Axe is equipped with a very strong American hickory haft.
