The grip has black leather wrapping and is comfortable in the hand. All metal parts have a patinated finish to make it look just like an antique axe. This ax is made of semi-sharp 1065 carbon steel tempered to a hardness of 48-52 HRC. It is delivered including a leather sheath. A nice medieval axe for your collection or for medieval reenactment.

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.
