This axe by Windlass Steelcrafts is based on medieval axes from approx. 1300 used in medieval battles. An axe was a tool and weapon in 1. In the army camp it was possible to chop wood with it, to beat tent pegs in the ground with the hammer blade at the back, and on the battlefield it could cause serious injuries to limbs, chainmail and armor. This axe type was used by infantry, cavalry and archers. Almost everyone owned an axe for battle. This semi-sharp axe with hardwood shaft is made of tempered 1065 carbon steel with a hardness of 48-52 HRC. Perfect for medieval reenactment, or as a decorative axe for your historical weapon collection.

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.
