Viking and Medieval Battle Axes
The Battle Axe was a crucial instrument since the Stone Age. Viking warriors are thought to be the first Europeans to make a large Battle Axe just for war.

Shorter handled axes were favored by knights for mounted combat. Our Medieval Battle Ready Axes with tempered, high carbon steel heads.
