Whiskey and Weapons, Axes & Seaxs

Nathan and Craig invite you to join them for a sip and chat about Axes and Seaxs in today's Whiskey and Weapons. If you would like to sip along with us while we are discussing the happiness an axe or seax can bring a person, we will be sipping Highland Park 12 year Viking Honour today. We look forward to sharing some interesting history, weapons and maybe even to entertain you a bit.

Highland Park 12 year Viking Honour

Neither of us have had a Highland Park of late so we decided to adventure into this Orkney Isle single malt while talking about a recently finished seax we completed and a pair of original Frankish seax blades.

We also thought having a broad Axe would be appropriate and we think it is one of the best cutting weapons ever designed. Light, swift and devastating would be the tasting notes if it was in a glass.

The Arms and Arms Type M Dane Axe, perfect for upholding your Viking Honor 

So pour yourself a glass of your favorite sipping beverage and join us for a chat.

Here are some other Viking era weapons that we make in case you need to outfit your entire raiding/sipping party.
