Noric Steel Hand Forged Viking Axe (Free delivery use coupon FREESHIP)


This imposing viking axe head is hand forged from 5160 spring steel, after rough forging, the axe is ground to its final shape. It’s annealed once and quenched in oil, then tempered twice at 200 degrees celsius, to achieve the finest grain structure. This makes the blade tough and durable. It is fully heat treated, well balanced, battle ready and sharp!

The axe head itself has a rustic forged finish and a satin polish on the blade, which makes it very realistic according to the Viking era.

The handle is hand carved from mountain ash wood, which was locally harvested, split and dried by the blacksmith. It is stained and tightly wrapped in genuine leather strips, which are secured by a pin at the end.

Overall length is 55cm – 21.7”

Blade length of 12 cm – 4.7”

Weight: approximately 800grams – 1lb12oz.

Being handmade each axe varies slightly from the specifications and the photo.  This listing is for one axe only.

The Noric Steel Viking Axe is hand forged in a small, private forge in Slovenia, Europe.

The blacksmith specializes in high quality woodworking tools, but mostly knives and axes. Being a big fan of Norse mythology , Dan’s work is influenced by the style of the ancient Vikings from Scandinavia. Dan never make wallhangers.  All of his tools are made to be used and hopefully handed down to future generations who will cherish them. He order’s high carbon tool steel from Germany, as steel of such quality is difficult to obtain where he lives. Most of the wood he tries to harvest himself, from falling the tree, to debarking, splitting, drying it and carving/fitting the handles. The best wood for axe handles is mountain Ash, with straight grain, this type of wood is very strong and tough, but also very durable and flexible enough to absorb the shock. The sheaths are done in Slovenia by a close friend of Dan’s who is a local leatherworker.
