Viking Axes, Bearded Axes and Norse Axes

The axe was one of two common weapons for a Viking warrior to wield. Easy to make and easy to repair, it was a brutally effective weapon that well-suited the wild yet powerful style that Vikings were said to utilize when they entered into battle. And at Dark Knight Armoury, we offer a selection of authentic Viking axes that recreate historic designs for you to use in your own reenactments and battles. Designed with a myriad of uses in mind, the Viking axe was a weapon of many uses. It could function on a farm or in a village, performing any number of mundane tasks, yet when called to war, it became a deadly weapon as capable of shattering shields and cleaving through armor as it was of splitting logs. Our Viking axes recreate a variety of one and two handed designs, all made with steel heads. Some are stainless steel and made to recreate the design in a decorative fashion. A majority of others, though, are made in carbon steel and forged steel, recreating the Viking axe in truth, one as simple as it is effective. They are also offered in different sizes, ranging from smaller hand axes and throwing axes to larger battle axes and war axes that Viking berserkers would have wielded when they committed themselves to battle. The axe is nothing fancy, and it does not have to be. In the hands of a Norseman, a Viking axe was a deadly weapon almost without equal, and Dark Knight Armoury is happy to offer you plenty of options when it comes to selecting the right axe for you to wield.
