Battle Axes, Tomahawks and Handles

Battle Axes could be single or double-edged. Used primarily as a cutting weapon, they were capable of dismembering the enemy in one fell swoop. Not only were they used for close contact fighting, but they could also be hurled as a missile.

Review of: Francesca Axe

Cool axe.  Sturdy.  Works for splitting light, softwood (even though that's well outside of what this axe would have been historically used for).  Haven't tried it on harder wood.  Would work well for throwing, but might require some reprofiling to make it narrower and lighter.

Overall profile would work for throwing.  This is the weapon for whom the Franks - and therefore France - was named.

Review of: Francesca Axe

This axe is a very nice offering from Windlass. It is light and very maneuverable. The finish on mine is quite nice, better than the picture here on the website. The price is very reasonable and I definitely recommend it.

Review of: The Beast Axe

The original Beast axe looked much better, should have kept the curve and the brass...
P.S. your overveiw on website is for a sword, not this version of this axe...

Review of: Francesca Axe

Excellent medium size fighting/throwing axe. I love the old timey blacksmith look they give the axe head, and for the price it just can't be beat. I have one at the moment, am considering ordering 2 more to be more historically accurate. Factoid: The Franks would use the slightly curved handles not only for more accurate throwing, but if they were to miss their target the axe would continue to spin and "bounce" at the Roman masses. Terrifying!! All in all an excellent buy and MRL/ACC sells replacement shafts for cheap.

Review of: Viking Throwing Axe

With the neo-Viking engraving on the head, I was definitely not expecting this axe to be so solid. Sharper than I expected as well, took a beating with no looseness in the handle. I'm not that great at throwing, but was able to stick 7 out of 12 throws right from the box!

Review of: Battlecry Orleans Battle Axe

Just about the perfect size and weight for a battle axe, the Orleans Battle Axe is a sturdy, well-balanced weapon. The top and rear spikes are quite large and sharp, and should be effective against mail or even plate armor. The ax head will likewise cut through just about anything it hits - if you provide the strength to do so! I especially like the dark "stone-washed" finish of this item. It provides the rust protection of stainless with none of the inherit weaknesses of that material, plus it looks great, very medieval. Good, solid langets add strength and enhance the appearance of this axe. In all, a fine addition to any weapons collection.

My first medieval axe and there is nothing I don't like about it! From the finish to the way it feels this piece is melon death in my hands.
