Carved dragon bearded axe

Carved Dragon Bearded Axe #348

This axe is another one of the Norse bearded axe styles. The dragon pattern hand chasing is of my own design.

The axe head is hand forged of mild steel with a high carbon bit forge welded in in the traditional way. The handle is of ash wood with a linseed oil and beeswax finish that has been heated to cause the finish to penetrate the wood deeply.
