I own several Norse axes. All of them are great in their own way but there’s only one I always go to for everything. This one. Holds an edge well, easy to sharpen and can take a beating. A perfect camping axe, IMO. I use it in cutting up wood and yard work, to carrying it with me on my fishing trips for emergency rope cuts or in case I’m broke down I have a survival tool. It is worth every penny.
I'll admit it, I binge watched Vikings and had to have one. Looked on Amazon and it was all Made in Taiwan and cheap, prop stuff. This is the real deal and I'm glad I made the investment. This exceeds my expectations and I expect to get a lot of use out of it in the forests of north Idaho.
This is a very fast maneuverable axe. My only problem was the haft felt a bit rough which I fixed with some sandpaper and Tung Oil. Otherwise very happy with this axe.
Viking Shield only gets a few of these in at a time so I set an email alert to notify when the get a shipment so I jumped on. This is simply the best, most wicked axe I have. Very well balanced compared to mass produced models. When you handle it you wonder how the Vikings were every defeated.
