This sparth is a replica of a 13rd-14th century piece found in the river Corrib at Dungeons Lower, county Galway. Similar axes were used by the gall óglaig (galloglass) in the Irish sea area. These warriors from half Gaelic, half Norse descent dominated the Irish sea area between the 13rd and 16th centuries. This long axe is a development from the Viking axe.
This axe has a shaft of about 150 cm long and a head of around 30 cm wide. The axe can be delivered battle-ready (blunt), sharp and with safety strip.
