Certain historical axes used by the Vikings were also called Danish axes, an early type of polearm. Viking axes are typically made light enough to withstand throwing, crafted with forged heads and hardened edges. Other Viking axes were designed for punching through enemy armour or cleaving helms in close combat due to their relatively short cutting edges. The Viking axe was not only used for warfare, serving as a tool on farms and for cutting timber for their Viking ships. We carry many types of Norse axes, including Danish axes, Viking throwing axes, Mammen axes, bearded axes, and Francisca axes. We also offer Viking replica weapons inspired by the hit show following the life of the legendary Viking, Ragnar Lothbrok. Many of our Viking axes feature authentic designs and are fully functional for reenactments.
