This medieval Utility Axe is a perfect example in that regard, possessing form enough to useful during times of war and times of peace. It was not uncommon for farmers to take their tools with them when they became soldiers, if only because they were the most readily available weapons.

The blade is crafted from carbon steel, while the axe head measures approximately 8.5 inches wide, giving it just enough size to be intimidating and powerful.
The functional axe head is mounted atop a hardwood haft, which measures closer to 30.5 inches long. It is just long enough to be used effectively with one hand or two, giving this axe a rather impressive level of versatility.
