Norse Fantasy Viking Axe (#1746) - Darksword Armory
This Viking axe sits at the balance point between form and function. While reputed as a fierce weapon, the Viking axe was, at times, decorated with intricate, artistic designs and carefully created knot work. Similarly to the Viking sword and jewellery, the surviving relics of the Viking age point to an important level of appreciation to art that runs counter to the popular perception of Vikings as barbarians. The Norse Viking axe is inspired by Norse sagas and historical counter parts. Mainly fantasy in nature, the head depicts a great serpent in mammen style knot work. The Norse Viking axe head is 8'' wide and 11'' long. The total length is 34".
