Product information "Viking Axe, Hand-Forged Steel, Type K"
Viking Axe, Hand-Forged Steel, Type K

Whether it was used for chopping down trees, building ships, houses and furniture, or wielded in battle, the axe was an indispensable and versatile tool for the Vikings. The shape and size of the axe heads was determined by their intended use. There were also elaborately adorned axes that were more of a status symbol and were often buried alongside their owner. Today, Viking axes are popular collectors' items, and often wielded in films, TV series and video games to convey the image of the wild and fearless Vikings.

Shapewise, the head of the Viking axe we offer here is classified as a Petersen type K. The blade is hand-forged from high carbon steel, and the handle is made of sturdy ash wood.

Please note that this early medieval axe, as it is supplied, is primarily designed as a collector's or decoration/display piece. Besides its quality as a collectible, it is also perfectly suited as a prop, e.g. to complete your costume, and will make your transformation into a proud warrior just perfect.
Owing to its workmanship and material thickness, this axe can of course also be modified: With a little craftsmanship, the axe blade can be resharpened or, on the other hand, the tips can be rounded and the cutting edge ground blunt. Depending on the intended use, the axe can thus be transformed into a functional working axe or a battle-ready weapon suitable for combat re-enactment.

Specs may slightly vary from piece to piece.

The steel used here is not rust-proof and might show slight surface tarnishing in places. We recommend you to maintain the blade on a regular basis, for example using Ballistol Universal Oil, which is ideally suited for steel care.
