The Nordic warrior held his weapon in great reverence and often lavished them with elaborate decorations. Our example displays a Viking dragon knot work motif. This is the perfect size for one handed combat in conjunction with a shield. The decorated head is tempered steel and the shaft is from a good hardwood. A great choice to finish out your Viking gear. A Viking's equipment consisted of sword, sax, axe, spear and round shield, the quality of which indicated a warrior's social status. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts.

A long backorder for me too, but it arrived today. Very nice; clean, smooth finish, light coat of oil, excellent haft, solid socket & thin blade. Thin is GOOD, as it makes the weapon very light and an excellent fighting axe. I would bave liked to see a slightly more gradual taper of blade to socket, though, and on mine the wood also protrudes 3/4" beyond the socket - unlike the photo - which makes this particular axe look a little "rougher" than might be desirable.

The axe in the picture is great, beautiful even. The axe I recieved, the steel head of the axe was slid down the wooden shaft a good inch and a quarter. So now every time I look at it in my collection I see an ugly inch and a quarter of waisted space spewing out above the top of the axe head. I will be returning this.

Superb! The back-order seemed like forever, but I recieved the shipped e-mail yesterday and the axe today. Appearance and heft are superb, and using a fine file on one side only, it took a keen edge in mere minutes without marring the finish in the least. Like all of the items from MR's that I've added to my collection it's beyond reproach. I picked up a mannequin and now have a Viking standing in the corner that looks like he's ready to go out raping and pillaging at a moment's notice, causing visitors to start each and every time. Keep up the fantastic work!!!!

My rating is on looks alone, I dont yet own this axe but wanted to let people know they can see aa axe that looks just like this one in the book "Warrior: A Visual History of the Fighting Man". This book is not a historical reference book and most of the pictures look to be replicas. (may actually be an MRL axe?) Anyway, It looks like a very nice peice and I plan to add this one to my collection soon! Thanks, David Cellini WMA student & collector or A&A
