Viking Ax - 23" - Handmade High Carbon Damascus Steel Blade
Viking Ax Description
This Viking Ax / Viking Axe is an 23" ax with a 5" head designed for battle. It is made from pattern welded Damascus steel and designed for beauty and function. The Viking ax was a weapon used in the middle ages and was used and owned by most Scandinavians during the Viking reign.
The Viking ax is made from Pattern welded Damascus steel. Pattern welded Damascus steel scimitar is a hard heat treated, folded carbon steel. There are 11 pieces of steel, folded five times, making 352 layers. The steel is the perfect combination of hardness and durability with a Rockwell hardness rating between 55 and 56 HRC. High carbon damascus steel must contain layers of high carbon steel. The high carbon steel we use is 1095 steel which is the highest content carbon steel used in swords. The combination of the steel layers creates a sword that is strong enough to hold a powerful edge while having the strength and flexibility to withstand powerful collisions. This makes the perfect steel for swords. The handle is bone and horn with Damascus steel bolsters. It comes with a leather sheath.

very pleased with the axe and find it to be of superior quality.
The workmanship on this ax, as always with Battling Blades, is excellent. It is absolutely beautiful.
There is, however, a shocking lack of raiding targets available these days.
Excellent quality and workmanship shows a mastery of metallurgy.
I was surprised to see what I received for my money.
Excellent choice from all aspects and I would buy again and again....
