Sturdy and fully functional throwing axe. This axe is based on early medieval originals used by the Vikings. This type of axe staid in use until the 16th century, for example on the British isles. They were also traded with the native Americans in North-America, who used them as throwing axes. This axe is a handy tool for living history, re-enactment and bushcraft.

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.
