The axe (sometimes ax in American English) is an implement that has been used for millennia to shape, split and cut wood, to harvest timber, as a weapon, and as a ceremonial or heraldic symbol. The axe has many forms and specialised uses but generally consists of an axe head with a handle, or helve.
Axes were made famous during the 8th to 10th Centuries by the Vikings and Danes. With the Danish axe and Viking Bearded Axe as an implement of battle in raids. Later styles of axes were adopted by the Medieval Knights.
We will be adding more axes in the near future for our foundry.
