Petersen Type A axes probably have the longest period of use of any axe type. They are likely to have been made from the Roman period and some cultures still produce similar style axes even today.
My hand forged axes are left forged blackened with the cutting edge polished on sharp axes. I can polish the entire axe head for an extra £50, please specify you want the axe polishing when making your order.
The blade protector is made from oak and based on a find from Hedeby. If you would like one please select it on the order form.
The haft is made from ash and bottom hafted.
