Review of: Medieval Horseman's Axe

A decent axe, especially if you can snag it a the Deal of the Day price.  My brother and I both bought one with no complaints.  Works with a variety of periods and styles.

Review of: Medieval Horseman's Axe

Maybe not great, but good at this price. Really, about the only thing I don't like about it is that it's a little plain. I'm thinking I may just need to 'antique' mine a little.

Materials seem good, very solid well-fitted secure handle. I'll use mine for re-enactment so I'll leave the factory edge. I doubt these were intended for chopping wood, though they will probably withstand light use.

I was fascinated by the design and didn't have anything like it in my collection (I have mostly rugged looking GDFB, Hanwei, a couple of Cold Steel). I was interested to find lots of historical references to this style of axe though, including this one on wikipedia for 'Battle Axes': Robert the Bruce, King of Scotland, used an axe to defeat Henry de Bohun in single combat at the start of theBattle of Bannockburn in 1314. Given that Bruce was wielding the axe on horseback, it is likely that it was a one handed horseman's axe. They enjoyed a sustained revival among heavily armored equestrian combatants in the 15th century.

Review of: Medieval Horseman's Axe

I loved this axe, weight was very good and when sharpened performed well. On the earlier review possibly used it on to big a log since this is not really made for chopping logs but men,or stout limbs on trees, which is what I did with it and it worked great!

Review of: Medieval Horseman's Axe

Overall, this is a good replica.  The curved handle is a definite plus.  The head has good definition.  The only problem that I see is that a little detailing might be needed.  This is something that is needed in a collection of war axes.

Review of: Medieval Horseman's Axe

I snagged TWO of these when it appeared as the Weekend Deal. When I saw it, it occurred to me that this is EXACTLY how I'd expect the axe used by Robert the Bruce to dispatch Henry de Bohun to look! Receiving them, I was not disappointed. Great size and, as another reviewer mentioned, it's almost alive in your hand. Very ergonomic. It's also very sturdy, with no wiggle whatsoever. It comes butter-knife dull, but even though I'm no wiz at that sort of thing it took me all of 15 minutes with a bench grinder, flat file and then a stone to make it "cleave-ready." Great axe.

Review of: Medieval Horseman's Axe

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