This small axe is beautifully decorated with etched design modeled after the famous original Mammen axe. 17 3/4" hardwood handle. Head has 4" polished cutting edge. Weighs about 1 pound. A great addition to any collection.

This is an impressive piece of work. I was expecting mere etching. However the very authentic looking designs were pressed into the steel and then highlighted. And overall it looks great. The edge is smooth and sharp, but I'll not be cutting down trees or Anglo-Saxons with it-- it is too nice for that. The handle feels a little thin, but then again it is proportionate to the head.
Completely functional for chopping or fighting--yet fancy enough for formal wear. This is what every well-dressed Jarl should have hanging from his belt.
