The Vikings were well-known for their love of axes, not only because they were simple and easy to use, but also because they were efficient and effective. This Viking Axe echoes the simple look and feel that would have been common in Viking weapons. In many ways, this axe has a lot in common with a typical Indian tomahawk, at least in terms of shape. The axe possesses a simple bit that gradually extends out from the axe-head, possessing a curved edge that is made for chopping and hacking. The axe-head is fitted onto a straight, hardwood haft, making it ideally suited for one-handed use, although it does have the length required to accommodate two hands, should extra leverage be needed. The axe head is crafted from carbon steel and possesses a bit length of 5 inches. The overall length of the axe is closer to 24 inches. Uncomplicated is a good way to describe this Viking Axe, as it lacks fancy designs or needless decorations, and is, instead, a beautiful weapon that replicates the simplicity and the effectiveness of an old medieval axe.
