Horseman's Axe $50.00

In earlier ages the axes taken to a battle were the same ones used in everyday work That, however, is not the case with this axe; it was made for war. The down curved, wedge shaped blade coupled with the curved shaft made for a very powerful cutting arc that could shear through mail and badly damage the simple plate that was in use at the time. When reversed, all of the force of the blow was concentrated on the back hammer poll and could crush a helmet. In the hands of a mounted knight this type of heavy headed axe was devastating to men on the ground and on horseback alike. It could split mail helms and shields, and the extended back poll could easily crush bone. The curve of the hardwood shaft added to the power of the blow. An excellent fighting axe and a devastating “high-tech” weapon for its age.

  • Overall: 19-1/2:
  • Blade Head: 3-1/2" x 6-3/4"
  • Wt: 2 lbs


Archer's Axe $60.00

Circa 1300

Archers always carried an in-close fighting sidearm, and an axe like this one was a perfect choice as both a good worker and a weapon.  The flat poll was good for hammering in stakes that were often used in the defensive line, and then the blade could be used to sharpen them.  This is a basic European pattern that was carried and used by infantry as well as mounted warriors as its design is just so practical for all kinds of uses in the field as well as war.  Tempered steel head on a good hardwood shaft.  Add this highly functional piece of history to your collection.
