CIXH2044N: Short Viking Axe, Antiqued
CAS Hanwei
These Hanwei short axes, replicating Viking weapons, are made by Paul Chen to withstand throwing, with forged heads and hardened edges. They are well balanced and competition approved. The Short Bearded Axe provided a concentration of power behind a relatively short cutting edge, ideal for punching through any armour of the period in close combat. The Short Viking Axe was useful both on the farm and in battle. It excelled as a close quarters weapon, while still being light enough to throw when necessary.

For reenactment only
ConsHaft is poor qualityNeeded a wedge to secure head to haftNot heat treated (edge fails easily)More of a saber grind (if i can even call it that) than a convex axe grindLeather stitching fails easily.ProsAntiquing looks cool.Overall this is not a functional axe. Will look good at a renaissance fair though if that's all you need it for. You can spend less and get a way better axe though.

Pros: Head Material, Weight, None
Cons: Handle Material, Construction
Nice size, poor handle
I keep this axe in my bedroom for emergency use. I like the classic shape of the head, but the handle is made out of three quarter inch lumber with rounded over edges. The handle is very uncomfortable for any long period of use. Hanwei should look at the Gransfors Bruks line of axes for a superior shaped handle.
