In peacetime, this type of ax was used for carpentry work. Basically, they
processed wood. It is slightly heavier than combat ones, but on the battlefield
it was easier for them to penetrate the enemy's armor. The curved shape at the
bottom of the blade worked like a grappling hook and made it possible to hook
the enemy's shield and pull it towards you, thereby opening up the enemy's
defense and making him vulnerable to strike.
This variation was used by the Vikings, both at work and on the battlefields.
The ax was forged by me. He is hardened, his blade is sharpened, and his head
is covered in a beautiful dark blue by smith bluing. Its handle is made of bog
oak, covered with natural linseed oil and covered with a piece of leather. This
hatchet will perfectly decorate and illuminate a dark corner of your home. This
can be a great Father's Day gift. It will also serve you to create a cosplay
image of a Viking.
its length is 58 cm (22.8 inches)
blade length - 15 cm (6 inches)
