1065 High Carbon Steel
2 lbs

This Viking Axe has a strong head crafted from 1065 high carbon steel and it is securely mounted onto a robust haft of American Hickory. Designed to be a solid fighting axe, it was designed as a collaboration between Cold Steel President Lynn C. Thompson and custom bladesmiths Dave Baker and Rich McDonald.

The axehead is a good compromise in size and is large enough to deliver the mass and striking power needed for warfare, but is not so large as to be unwieldy and sluggish in the recovery. The beard-like bottom of the axe can be used for the variety of hooking techniques that skilled Viking axemen employed, and the upswept tip doubles as a piercing tip. The axe lends itself best to two-handed use, but with the use of your own saw you could cut it down to your own preferred size.

There is a recessed, internal screw at the back of the socket which can be tightened with your own hex key wrench to re-seat the axe onto the haft should it begin to loosen. Care must be taken not to turn it too far as it is possible to drive the screw so far into the haft that the screw leaves the axehead socket entirely. In such a position it will no longer function as intended.

Please Note: A Cor-Ex sheath for the axe blade is available and is sold separately. It is linked on this page with a thumbnail.
