Forged in Battle: The 23" Viking Ax - A Formidable Legacy of the Norse Warriors
Immerse yourself in the ancient lore of the Vikings with this meticulously crafted 23" battle ax. Enshrined in the annals of history, the Viking ax was more than just a weapon—it was a symbol of fear and respect. This ax embodies the raw power and artistic finesse of the Vikings, brandishing a 5" head made from the revered Pattern Welded Damascus Steel. A striking blend of functional warfare tool and an aesthetic masterpiece, this ax encapsulates the era of the Viking reign that lasted through the Middle Ages.
Heart of the Ax: The Damascus Steel Blade At the core of this ax is the blade crafted from Pattern Welded Damascus Steel. Known for its signature wave patterns, Damascus Steel is a testament to ancient metallurgical prowess. The process involves folding 11 pieces of steel five times to create a staggering 352 layers, resulting in a Rockwell hardness rating of 55 to 56 HRC. This demanding forging process, using high carbon 1095 steel, births a blade that not only holds a devastating edge but also exhibits strength and flexibility to withstand the rigors of battle. This ax isn't just a weapon—it's a saga forged in steel.
Handle and Sheath: A Union of Function and Form Contrasting the hardened steel, the handle of the ax provides a comfortable and secure grip essential for wielding it effectively in battle. Although mentioned as bone and horn in the material section but specified as wood in the details, the handle is a tangible extension of the warrior's arm, delivering the ax's fury to foes. Accompanying this ax is a durable leather sheath for safe storage and ease of transport, a companion to the ax as loyal as the Vikings to their cause.
