This heavy axe is based on a historical original from the British Museum. Axes like this were mainly used for chopping wood in the early Middle Ages and early modern times. Of course they also did other things with it. That is why we made this double Viking axe battle-ready. The tips are rounded and the edges are 3mm thick. This axe can therefore be used well on the reenactment battlefield.

Prevent rust and corrosion by oiling your weapons regularly. Remove rust easily with black sandpaper. Remove burrs with a whetstone. Make sure you have removed all burrs before using a battle-ready weapon, as they can cause wounds.
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.
