I forged this axe from a damascus billet I made of 512 layers of 1095 and mild steel. The Viking pattern axe is 6in from poll to blade with a blade width of 3in. It is mounted on a 25in fire-blackened ash handle.
The pattern is a Mamen style dragon adapted to fit this broad axe head.
Viking pattern axe with carved and chased ornamentation of the dragon’s scales on the cheeks and the eyes and snout carved into the top edge of the axe.
