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.

nice axe but the head is a little loose

Viking Spear

Despite the adulation and reverence given to the sword, the spear was generally the weapon of choice for Vikings. Used as throwing weapons and as pikes, spears were an indispensable part of their daily routine. This Viking spear is hand forged of a tough, high carbon steel by Windlass Steelcrafts®. Pole not included.

Archer's Axe

Archers always carried an in-close fighting sidearm, and an axe like this one was a perfect choice as both a good worker and a weapon. The flat poll was good for hammering in stakes that were often used in the defensive line, and then the blade could be used to sharpen them. This is a basic European pattern that was carried and used by infantry as well as mounted warriors as its design is just so practical for all kinds of uses in the field as well as war. Tempered steel head on a good hardwood shaft. Add this highly functional piece of history to your collection.
