This Nordic fighting axe is a Peterson Type L style. with the angled cutting edge. This allows the axe head to land a blow along the length of the cutting edge when swung at a human shaped target. This single handed axe has a hardened sharp edge of 1050 steel. Light and fast, it is mounted on an ash haft with subtle shaping to give better handling and control. 

You can see similar pieces made by A&A in action on a great research website on Viking culture and combat here Hurstwic. 

This style of axe is quite interesting as the head length is longer than most. Its handling is light and quick. It is not the type of weapon used to beat an opponent to the ground but rather strikes with the agility and speed and can provide advantage in sweeping actions or cutting over a shield edge.


These items are hand made in total so there will be slight variations in shape and dimensions.
