    war-hatchet-banner-ii.png 

    Many kinds of weapons played significant and important roles on the medieval battlefield. Some weapons were created as special purpose martial and military appliances, while others evolved from the tools people tended to have at hand for times of need. Inevitably, some tools became popular as weapons and spawned new versions of themselves dedicated to fighting and warfare. One tool that often found its way onto the field of battle, and then spawned specialized fighting versions, was the axe. Using the axe as a weapon is compelling for many reasons. Most people were, and still are, familiar with axes.

    The basic use of an axe is immediately evident upon grasping it, and even an unskilled axe wielder can still deliver a very powerful blow with an axe since it efficiently concentrates force at the end of the lever. It is also generally accepted that axes are easier and cheaper to produce than swords, and they can also be produced in volume by less skilled craftsmen. A hatchet (from the Old French hachete, a diminutive form of hache, 'axe' of Germanic origin) is a single-handed striking tool, typically with less curvature on the blade. This War Hatchet is an agile single-handed weapon. Its fairly light weight makes it quick in the hand and easy to throw. I have also discovered that this axe is a capable wood chopper! Functionally, it feels and performs like a camp axe in this application. The edge has held well through all my use. Thus far the haft of the axe has also remained tightly attached to the axe head; a definite plus. Due to its size and weight, the War Hatchet is not a weapon I can envision sundering a shield, but does concentrate quite a bit of punch. It lacks the awful (unauthentic) glossy black head and wide silver blade band, that make other similar reproduction axes look like modern shed tools; instead its surface is wonderfully gnarled and pitted, making it look as if it was forged in Scandinavia a thousand years ago.

    1. Viking war hachet

      This is a great Axe,i would carry one everywhere, but I would be arrested!. Excellent quality, nice & sharp, light to handle; a little ripper! on 4th Sep 2018

      This is a superb hand axe, light, beautiful balance,great hitting power, throws well, & handy around the camp. The forging is nicely done. You wont go wrong having his in your collection. on 2nd Aug 2018

    3. Raid those Monasteries!

      I loved this as soon as I opened the packaging. It's balanced well and feels amazing in the hand. This was my first order from here and will definitely not be the last!! on 16th May 2018

    4. Happy camper

      I was impressed as soon as I opened it.
      Went and picked a fight with a five foot tree stump, it froze in fear and had no chance!
      Would happily jump in a longboat and go exploring across the seas to plunder and come back to pay off my credit card and buy more items again.

    5. War Hatchet

      Very happy with this product. It has the same handle as the Viking axe. Both feel great and well balanced in the hand. on 16th Aug 2016

    6. Release your inner Viking!

      Excellent quality and looks like it was crafted by a blacksmith in the forest - not spat out of a modern factory. Well balanced and feels great in the hand. on 1st Aug 2016

    7. Rugged, useful, and great value

      The metal is imperfect in a rugged sort of way. The timber is much nicer than the photos, with a nice grain and deep red/brown colour. The handle has a teardrop profile to it making it easy to control and feel which way the blade is pointing. The only minor downer is the erratic factory sharpening (easy fix). on 1st Aug 2016

    8. Great

      Exceptional axe for the price tag. on 19th Aug 2015
