Danish Hand Axe

95.00€

To the victims of the Vikings, they were all Danes. It didn't matter whether they came from Norway, Denmark or Sweden, they called them Danes. Most everyone is familiar with the larger Danish Axe, with the monstrous blade sometimes over a foot wide. But smaller axes were quite popular for all sorts of work, hewing the limbs of trees as well as the limbs of men. They could be thrown if needed, but were quite handy in close combat with or without a shield. High carbon steel blade. Not only is this a fine replica, it is a fine axe in its own right. Circa 850.

Overall 53cm (21”), weight 700g (1 1/2 lbs). Made by Windlass Steelcrafts.
