I have bought several pieces from MR over the years. All have been either very good or extremely good. This axe is the most disappointing item I have ever gotten from MR. After waiting two months without explanation from MR, this axe arrived yesterday. When I got it out of the box and began carefully unwrapping it, the spiked ball fell off. Upon examination, it was lightly glued in place. Looking at the axe head, the back spike was off center and the head had multiple sanding/grind marks making it look like an rushed piece. The handle has a crappy naugahyde wrap that looks cheap and feels worse. Finally, where the axe head mounts on the handle, it is not blended as a nice smooth surface, but rather a metal head banged on a cheap shaft. I will be returning this by the weekend and seriously considering if MR has taken a turn for the worse.

Just received a pair of this most beautiful and deadly weapon! Except for the addition of the spiked mace pommel, this item is very similar to the Dalcassian axe wielded by the 11th century Irish warriors. Such as Turlogh O'Brien--another fictional character created by Robert E. Howard. Also this axe would have been loved by Gimli son of Gloin and many another Dwarven Hero.
