One of the most common and effective Viking weapons was not the sword (which was usually reserved for the nobility) but the bearded hand axe, the Skeggøx. With a protruding 'beard' the axe crescent is extended without adding unnecessary extra weight and can also be used to hook and grapple an opponents shield. Historically, it was also a much more versatile everyday tool - used not only in war, but also in the woods to harvest timber for Longship repair, around the camp and back home in Scandinavia on the family farm in times of peace..
Highly versatile, both in the hand and thrown at short range, the 5 1/4" carbon steel axe head is decorated with an embossed pattern reminiscent of 10th century Jellinge Style Viking engravings.
