Description

We make our Viking axe based on an original axe head that Elsa’s father and brother dug up in a field on the southern part of Gotland, Sweden. The original is dated to somewhere between year 1000-1500.

We have also made a smaller design of the original Viking axe, that we have named Little Viking axe. It is smaller and lighter. Same beautiful shape, only weighs 0,8 kg, and has the same handle as the Viking axe 1,5 kg.

Both of our Viking axes are good carving axes. The larger one (original size) is also good for timbering.

We also make a nice leather sheath for the Little Viking axe 0,8 kg, which can be bought separately. The colour of the leather might vary.

Little Viking axe 0,8 kg

  • Bevel length 14 cm
  • Total length 33 cm

Viking axe 1,5 kg

  • Bevel length 16 cm
  • Total length 33 cm

The weight indicates axe head and handle. The handle is made by ash wood. The total weight might vary because wood is a living material that can have different density and characteristics, even though we make sure all handles have the same humidity.
