Hand Forged Axe Head Pendant

  • £15.00

Axes will have been fairly common during the Viking age and although most prevalent for domestic uses, the axe that is generally remembered is the one that we see in battle. 

There will have been a variety of axes used in battle, often with long handles for greater reach across a shield wall. Some of the longest were specifically designed to hook onto the rim of the enemy shields in order to pull down the defences for their infantry colleagues to exploit.

This pendant was hand forged by Max from steel and is attached to a leather cord fixed with a simple slipknot for ease of resizing.
