In earlier ages the axes taken to a battle were the same ones used in everyday work That, however, is not the case with this axe; it was made for war. The down curved, wedge shaped blade coupled with the curved shaft made for a very powerful cutting arc that could shear through mail and badly damage the simple plate that was in use at the time. When reversed, all of the force of the blow was concentrated on the back hammer poll and could crush a helmet. In the hands of a mounted knight this type of heavy headed axe was devastating to men on the ground and on horseback alike. It could split mail helms and shields, and the extended back poll could easily crush bone. The curve of the hardwood shaft added to the power of the blow. An excellent fighting axe and a devastating “high-tech” weapon for its age.

    I'm amazed as to how affordable an axe can be. The Medieval Horseman's Axe is well worth the money. This one is elegant and almost simple in it's design. Light weight in the hand, it wants to be held. I kind of wonder why Windlass/ MRL never offers to sharpen the axes they sell? With the prices of all their axes, it makes it affordable to get the whole collection.

    This axe is very well balanced and hangs nicely from my belt. I would like to have replacement handles so I could practice throwing this fine axe.

    A truly wonderful axe. The wood is very durable and the head doesn't wobble no matter how much one uses it.
