This Viking axe is a replica of an axehead excavated in Rommunds (Gammelgarn, Gotland, Sweden) and dates from around 800 - 1099 AD. Nowadays the original is exhibited at the Swedish Historiska museet in Stockholm. The replica has the exact same size as the original axehead.

They were both decorative objects and everyday tools that were used to chop firewood and other odd jobs around the house. Axes were used by both men and women as tools around the house. Axes were also used in the battle for throwing and chopping.

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.
