Not all axes were made for splitting shields and cracking open helmets. This Templar Horseman Axe, for instance, is an example of an axe designed to take advantage of speed, possessing a curved blade and spiked poll for added lethality and versatility. This distinctive axe, as its name implies, is modeled after the sort of axe that mounted warriors would have favored, although its design makes it brutally effective on foot, too. The axe head is crafted from solid steel, tempered for strength, and sharpened for functionality. The axe-bit is wickedly curved to deliver a slicing blow, while the reverse poll features a pointed spike for punctures, back-strikes, and armor penetration. The axe head is double pinned to the hardwood shaft, which features a subtle curve that puts the axe just slightly ahead of the hand when swung from the bottom of the haft. It also features a tacked leather grip for security, and a leather loop at the tip, which would keep the axe attached to a warrior if something happened to knock it loose from their grip on horseback. This axe is fully functional, and sized rather well too, which means that when it comes down to it, this Templar Horseman Axe is a fine weapon, one that any axe-favoring warrior could stand to own as a part of their working arsenal.
