Boarding axes were used as far back as Viking times. Our replica is a French design, similar to many also found in Sweden. It is called the Hache du Bord or Hache Abordage naval boarding axe. This model has long fore and aft langets, securing the axe to the shaft, while there is an extra langet acting as both a belt or baldric hook and a protective shield for the wood against a cutlass thrust. The head is hand-forged and the hardwood shaft has a dark black stain. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts. Arrives sharpened from the factory.

Marquise boarding axe
This is a very solid weapon.  Love the feel in the hand will see if I can keep the belt up and the next fair with this axe on it.  Very happy with the way it looks and the feel.  Only knock on it would be that the point on the spike is not really in line with the rest of the head.  But not off so far as to be a problem.

This Axe is solid. If they offered to edge this, it would be a very functional axe, that would actually cut wood (or hemp lines) as the original design was intended for.
