Viking Bearded Battle Axe of the 7th Century

Item Description

New Made Item: High quality Bearded Axe which was a typical pattern of the Vikings, capable of cleaving helms or armor with impunity. This axe features a high carbon blackened steel head with un-sharpened edge and a hardwood shaft.

The Beard Axe is a Swedish broad axe developed during the 7th century. The broad axe originally came to the Nordic countries from Western and Central Europe and was subsequently developed into two basic axe types: the two-lugged and the four-lugged. The two-lugged broad axe is characterized by two lugs below the eye and was often quite big and heavy. It had a short handle and a long extended edge. The Beard Axe was used primarily as a tool for woodwork and for hewing planks, for example. This type of axe was an essential tool for boat building and constructing Viking buildings, which were built using horizontal planks. This replica is based on an 11th-century axe found in Gothem on the island of Gotland.
