The Nordland Axe has a sharpened axehead of high carbon steel; the robust haft is crafted from stained hickory.

The axehead is a Peterson Type C style noted for its hanging beard edge and the slight upward curve of the top of the cutting edge. It was a style common to the northern regions of both Sweden and Norway. The bottom of the haft has a swollen end that not only helps keep the haft in hand, but can also be used as a stop and pivot point to deliver a strike of great force.

Though the Viking sword gets a great amount of praise and attention, for more Northmen warriors it was the more humble fighting axe that brought them their livelihood and smote their enemies. Axes meant for felling trees and homestead use can be cumbersome, heavy and unbalanced, but this Norse fighting axe is none of these - it is a fast striking and hard hitting weapon of war. It is a durable weapon with a grievous bite that can also be thrown by a skilled warrior.
