Nice Axe
Surprisingly simple, but well made and functional axe. Easy addition to any collection.

My Favorite Axe
This is my go-to Ren Faire axe.  It is sturdy, good looking, and goes well with my ranger outfit.  Excellent price too.

Its a great axe, strong heavy head. Great balance for throwing also, only wish it could have been sharpened for extra money.

The Frankish ax leaves you completely prepared to defend you home against invading Franks.  

It is heavy for the size.  The only not accurate aspect is the reverse taper head.  But that keeps the head on so I don't mind too much.

Trowing it will have to wait until I can get a stump to toss it at.

Love this axe. Got it on the Deal of the Day, and a great bargain. It IS a bit rough, but that's part of why I like it! Looks like it was actually forged by some Frankish smith. Sturdy, solid and as easily sharpened as any woodsman's axe.

This is a beautifully made axe. It is solid but not as well balanced as a throwing tomahawk.  I love the looks and feel however and so far it is holding its edge well.

A well made solid usable axe.

A little rough, but for the price it is a solid well made weapon.

This beautiful axe is solidly constructed. Has a nice weight to it, and feels comfortable in the hand, both while just holdling or swinging and striking. I am very sastified.

Awesome buy on the deal of the day. Very happy with what I got for the price. Nothing fancy, it is a bit rough around the edges. Only four stars because no option to have it sharpened professionally which I would have gladly paid for.
