Here at Arms & Armor, we have long held the belief that nothing says I love you like an axe. Though some of our significant others disagree, most of our customers see the clear wisdom and joy of this statement. So in a blatant act of commercialism in support of our view of the world. We are offering a Valentine Special of two Nordland Axes for $300 including shipping, offer good through Valentines Day! Thats a great savings to bring some axe joy to your relationship.
These lovely axes are great for group throwing on a date night out, couple chopping or even a bit of kindling splitting when having a romantic bonfire. They are a design from the medieval past and their classic nordic lines are slimming when in hand or thrust through your belt.
But possibly their most enduring quality is how fantastic you will look when you and your partner leap over a gunnel or make an entrance through a classic barred wooden door, each with an axe in hand. You'll look marvelous!
Viking Raid by Ferdinand Leeke, 1901
