Details

The Francisca, so named for its Frankish origins, was used by the Vikings both as a throwing weapon and for close-quarters combat. Its graceful lines are legendary but the upswept point and down turned edge were both capable of penetrating chain mail. Our Francisca features a forged head with a fire-gray or antiqued finish and a swelled-end hardwood shaft for secure head retention. The shaft is also backswept, as were the originals, providing greater sticking capability when thrown.

    Great Value For A Great Product
    Review by Historical Enthusiast
    Fantastic Value for a marvellous looking axe. Balance and finish is of excellent quality. Handle and weight is very nice. Overall fantastic product if looking for a smaller "Viking style" axe, and don't want to fork over several hundred pounds for a two handed war axe. Suitable for any collector or enthusiast whether they be a serious collector or a novice. You won't be disappointed.
