Overview


This Francesca axe is a beautiful example of a Frankish weapon used during the earlier part of the Middle Ages. An axe like this was also carried by Germanic armies into battle and was used in hand-to-hand combat, as well as a lethal throwing weapon.

Our version, manufactured by Windlass Steelcrafts, has a rustic forge finish on the blade and the curved wooden shaft, making this feel great in your hand.

Francesca Axe Replacement shaft available.

Excellent Frankish/Franchesca Fighting
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.

Disappointing :(
First, the antiqued finish looks nothing like the photos.

What's most aggravating is that this would be an outstanding piece with better workmanship. I ordered two of these and they both have rough vertical grind marks on the back 2/3rds of the axe head, toward the eye. The last third toward the edge are ground horizontally with a much smoother finish. I wish I could include a photo to show how obvious this is.  A shame really.

I'm giving this 2 stars because the design and materials seem good.
