Based on the everyday tool for splitting wood, axes specialized for use in battle evolved, with larger heads and longer shafts. Some axe heads were inlaid with silver designs. In the later Viking era, there were axe heads with crescent shaped edges measuring up to 45 cm, called breiš-exi (broad axe).
The Short Viking Axe (XH2044N) was useful both on the farm and in battle. It excelled as a close quarters weapon, while still being light enough to throw when necessary. With this replica produced by Hanwei, you are assured of historical accuracy and quality construction.
