Genuine handforged two-handed axe designed in shape, form and decoration to resemble historical artifacts used by the Nordic people. Leather straps further securing the axe head to the handle and leather grip on the handle to prevent slipping were often found on axes of past & present. This is a fully functional axe model designed mostly for stunning display; however, it can still see efficient use as an axe if sharpened.
Contrary to the popular beliefs, two handed axes were not as commonplace among Viking warriors and were more of a rarity. Successful and seasoned warriors would prefer to procure a sword as their weapon of choice when they had an opportunity or means to afford one, however several two-handed axe variations were found among historical artifacts. These monstrous axes were made primarily to be weapons of war, and were not as useful in the day-to-day life of a naval warrior. Coupled with costliness, these iconic weapons were quite rare in the Viking arsenal.
