⚔️ NORSE STYLING - This 5-foot Viking broad axe draws inspiration from the Langeid axe found in southern Norway and dated to the early 11th century. We've taken a bit of creative license and added an Elder Futhark rune engraving along the curve of the carbon steel blade.

⚔️ HAND-FORGED AXE HEAD - Constructed to last and designed to perform, each war axe features a Petersen Type M axe head with a sharp edge that has been given an excellent heat treatment to achieve a 56-58 Rockwell scale hardness. The axe head and copper shaft wrapping is secured with copper rivets.

⚔️ BUILT FOR USE - While this axe is not built for battle situations, it is no toy, and is functional for light use. The axe head is secured by pins and heavy industrial wood glue. Do not use in combat or for any other heavy work for which the axe is not designed.

⚔️ STOUT SHAFT - The 5' axe handle is made from one piece of quality aged teakwood, one of the most hard and durable timbers available. The handle end is covered by a pure copper sheet and secured with copper rivets.

⚔️ LEATHER SHEATH - Premium brown leather sheath included with each purchase. Safely store and transport your long axe without fear of damaging the blade or an unsuspecting passerby!

⚔️ SPECIFICATIONS - 5' ash handle, 8.5" long 1095 carbon steel axe-head, sharp blade edge, 9.25" axe head width, 55-58 RC hardness, brown leather sheath, 4.9 lb total weight

 ⚔️ 100% SATISFACTION GUARANTEE - When you purchase directly from Norse Tradesman, your product comes guaranteed by our one year manufacturer warranty. If your item suffers a serious defect in workmanship or materials, we shall provide your money back or we will die trying!

Broad Axe, Dane Axe

Excellent forged instrument of destruction. I like the craftsmanship, the forged blade, the smooth, long handle that allows the wielder to slide the hands in balance to the swings. The sheath is a nice accessory, a good safety measure. Thanks! I love it!!
