Many Vikings who traveled into Rus' ended up settling there and later making their name there as Varangians, fearsome naval warriors renowned in all parts of the world. Along with them came their favorite weapon, axe, a trusty tool and often a reliable weapon of choice. When it came to managing and repairing their ships, longboats, made in their entirety of wood, axes were a must have for every one of those ancient naval warriors. When on land, axes were used to fell trees for fires, building basic defenses, or ship repairs.
