Pros: Head Material, Balance, Construction, Weight, Handle Material
Great value for the price
I bought this because of it's historical significance. Being of Danish ancestry, I am very interested in the weapons and fighting techniques of the Scandinavian peoples. I was astounded how quickly The KnifeCenter got it to me, top notch service. The weight and balance is very good with this axe. It's surprising how something so rugged could be so lightweight. There were only two"cons," neither of which were deal breakers for me. The first being the edge...it was dull, as in bowling ball dull. Not to worry, after a few hours , I had it shaving sharp. The second was the female threads where the set screw is embedded are boogered up, not allowing me to remove the set screw, and therefore the head. Again, no worries, I can drill this out and rethread it. Overall, an excellent value.
