A popular weapon in the Middle Ages, the battle axe made a useful option for mounted warriors, often made with a rear pick and spike for additional functionality. The Orleans Battle Axe works great as a collectible weapon or tool. The functional single-headed axe is crafted from tough 1065 high carbon steel. Computer controlled ovens provide strength, resiliency, and edge retention, tempering the blade to an RC in the low 50s. The medieval axe blade is then expertly sharpened, and the design is finished with super strong steel parts. A stonewashed black finish gives each historical battle axe a top-notch look.
The pieces in the Battlecry Series are individually inspected at each step of the manufacturing process. Each model is put through rigorous tests to ensure that they exceed industry standards and comes with a signed certificate.
The Siege of Orleans served as a turning point in the Hundred Years War between France and England. Joined by Joan of Arc, the French army had its first major victory following the defeat at the Battle of Agincourt.
