This axehead is made after several originals found in Scandinavia, on the British Isles, France, Ireland and The Netherlands. This type of axehead originated around the 2nd half of the 8th or the 1st half of the 9th century from the original bearded axe. Contrary to its predecessor this axehead has a wider blade and the ring is extra reinforced.
This axehead is handmade of iron. It has a blunt edge and because of this it can be used in re-enactment battles.

The length of the axehead is 15,5 cm, it has a blade of 11 cm and an eye that measures 25 x 33 mm. It weighs 650 grams.

This axehead is a Petersen type D.

Tip: How to adjust the finish of your armour and weaponry
Luxurious (polished)- polish the steel with metal polish or toothpaste. You can even give the item a mirror-like polish. Test on a small surface first!
Handmade (matte)- soak the steel in cola for 40 minutes to 20 hours. Check regularly and treat with black sandpaper.
Antique (patinated) leave the steel to rust for some time in a damp environment, preferably outside. Remove the red layer of rust, to reveal the corroded top layer.

Please note. After finishing the product yourself, the warranty and return right expire. Celtic WebMerchant is not responsible for the obtained result.

heb deze besteld en ben zeer blij, heb er ook de steel bij besteld deze was helaas iets te groot dus heb ik zelf bijmoeten slijpen maar dat was maar een klein min puntje voor de rest super tevreden
