The axe was a popular weapon during medieval times for a variety of reasons, the least of which was ease of construction. The Vikings, in particular, had a love for the axe, and one of their typical weapons is recreated here in this Viking Field Axe. This axe is relatively simple in design, mimicking what was a classic historic design that was effective in both close-quarters combat and for throwing. The axe features a straight hardwood handle that is specially designed to prevent the axe head from slipping or sliding down the handle or flying off the haft. The axe head is equally simple, possessing a subtle, beaded shape that provides a large cutting edge that is perfect for sinking deep into targets. The axe measures approximately 32 inches long from end to end, and the axe blade, or bit, measures approximately 8.5 inches. Please note that any weapon designed for combat should be handled with care. Thanks to its design, this particular axe is extremely well-suited for axe throwing, either in practice or in competition. Of course, if you are just looking for a nice display axe that features an authentic and historic look, this Viking Field Axe is also an equally nice choice.
