Cold Steel has been a long-time believer in the ruthless cutting power of a well-designed Viking axe.
The Cold Steel Viking axe is formidably long, its thin blade is fully polished and hand-sharpened to an incredible edge. It comes with a robust 25 cm (10") cutting surface that terminates in two sharp horns or points. Traditionally, the longer top point was used for stabbing, gouging, or parrying, while the slightly shorter bottom point was used to capture an opponent's shield or to hook and immobilize his neck, arms, or legs.
To maximize leverage, strength and dexterity of movement, the Viking axe is equipped with a very strong, resilient shaft. Made in Maine from the best American hickory available, it enhances and amplifies this Viking axe's exceptional potential as a cutting and chopping tool.
