The Short Bearded Axe provided a concentration of power behind a relatively short cutting edge, ideal for punching through any armour of the period in close combat. The Short Viking Axe was useful both on the farm and in battle. It excelled as a close quarters weapon, while still being light enough to throw when necessary.
