Petersen Type D axes come into use in the 9th century. They are thought to be the precursor of Type E and F axes.
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 for a hand axe. If you would like one when you order your axe please select it on the order form.
The haft is made from ash and bottom hafted.
