Scandinavian Bearded Axe: A Legacy of the Viking Era

Embrace the might and craftsmanship of the Viking age with this Scandinavian Bearded Axe, also known as the long Viking axe. A symbol of both utility and battle prowess, this axe is a faithful recreation of the ones used during the height of Viking dominance. Made from high carbon 1095 steel, this axe is not just a weapon; it's a work of art, blending historical design with functional superiority. The Viking axe was a common tool and weapon, an essential part of daily life and warfare in the Scandinavian regions during the medieval period.

Blade Craftsmanship

The blade of this axe is forged from 1095 steel, a material renowned for its high carbon content of 0.95%. This level of carbon ensures that the blade maintains a sharp edge, crucial for both cutting and combat efficiency. 1095 steel is known for its exceptional hardness, typically ranging between 56-58 HRC. However, high carbon steel like 1095 can be less flexible, which is a crucial quality for impact resistance in battle conditions. To counter this, the axe blade undergoes a clay tempering process. This involves applying a thick clay coating to the blade, except for the edge, during the quenching process. The clay insulates and slows the cooling of the treated areas, resulting in a blade with a razor-sharp edge and a more flexible body, optimizing both strength and sharpness.
