Single Headed Battle Axes

Nothing cleaves quite like an axe, and that is primarily why the single headed battle axe remained a mainstay weapon of the warrior throughout history. At Dark Knight Armoury, we offer a large assortment of this traditional weapon, ranging from the purely decorative to the fully functional, ensuring that any modern warrior can have a weapon befitting their prowess. At its most simple, a single headed battle axe features a wooden haft and a single bladed head. It is incredibly simple, and yet the combination is a deadly one that provides for a heftier swing and far more cleaving power, thanks to the focus of weight and force on a smaller bladed edge. This ensures that a good axe was capable of smashing through armor and cleaving through flesh and bone with frightening ease. Axes were used by virtually all peoples throughout the medieval era, although some of its most famous wielders hail from the Vikings, who demonstrated the axes ferocious prowess time and time again. The axe comes in a variety of styles, ranging from single handed weapons to two handed destroyers, while also varying the type of axe head to create bearded axes, Franciscan axes, throwing axes, barbarian axes, tomahawks, throwing hawks, and more! Some are a bit more decorative, ensuring that you can use them as a display piece in your medieval decor, while others are fully functional, allowing you to split some boards or targets as easily as you please. The single headed battle axe has long been the choice of warriors from the medieval ages, and now, Dark Knight Armoury is proud to offer you a selection of axes that allows it to be the choice of warriors for a modern age, too.
