Cold Steel Viking Battle Axe is intended to be used as a stand-alone weapon, but you can pair it with a sword, shield, or long sax. It is suitable to use in cutting, chopping, stabbing dynamo that any Viking worth his salt would. It’s drop forged and features a wide curved cutting edge that terminates in horns or “points” on the ends. This means you can stab, parry, or hook shields or “limbs” with ease. It also comes with a premium 30 inch long American Hickory handle which is long enough to accommodate two-handed use!
