This high quality Viking axe is part of the exclusive collection of "Historical Arms" by Marto of Spain
Ideal for collector's, this is an excellent piece of armour which would be a fantastic addition to any collection, can also be adapted for theatrical and TV use.
Perhaps the most common hand weapon among Vikings was the axe. The prevalence of axes in archaeological sites can likely be attributed to its role as not just a weapon, but also a trusted tool and they were often given names by their owners.
This Double Headed Ceremonial Axe by Marto shows that just because an axe is regarded as a simple, easy-to-make weapon, not all of them are brutish, plain, or unrefined.
This beautiful axe has a solid-wood haft, turned with a spiral pattern, while the axe-blade has a double-head and is embellished with ornately decorative designs in relief.
Simple in its form but highly decorated, this axe is the ideal collectors piece that shows off both the axes simplistic shape, as well as beautiful eye-catching features.
This item is truly something to be admired for it craftsmanship but adds an authentic touch of history to any costume or display.
