Battle Axe

#600754
$110.00

The axe is almost as old an implement as the club. Metal axe heads were among the first handiworks created during the Copper Age. With all this history it is easy to see why a Medieval warrior would choose a good axe for battle. This axe, circa 1100, has a back spike to add to its effectiveness as a weapon of war. The steel head is pinned to a hardwood shaft that is curved at the end on this one hand axe. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts®.

Reviews


Got this awhile ago thought I should leave a review.

After about 1.5 years of axe blows on various things the shaft finally broke, understandable though. I used the Axe head and the viking spear head off this sight to make my own Halberd so this is a good axe.

The head will never break, the shaft most likely will eventually if used. Easily replaceable though from your local hardware store. Just need a chisel, a hammer and a replacement shaft.

I like it, but I will need to wrap the upper handle with stainless steel safetywire or something stronger. I hope it is strong enough for use; I don't want a wallhanger!

Scottish Lion Flag

Widely used as a second national flag, the Royal Standard of Scotland is also known as the Rampant Lion. This Scottish Lion flag was adopted in the early 12th century by King William I. Based on a much older Scottish flag than the St. Andrew's Cross, it was used historically by the Kings of Scotland.

16th Century German Mace

By the 15th Century, armor had become so well developed that it was almost impervious to a sword cut and even a thrust. This heavy German mace, which evolved from man's oldest weapon, the club, could make short work of armor. With a few full sound blows the best of plate would be so damaged that the wearer's movement would be greatly impaired, quickly leading to defeat. This excellent example has 8 flanges and is made from steel which has a rust-protective coating in black to mimic the color of the original. The bottom of the shaft is wrapped in black leather for an improved grip. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts®.
