  • Regular price £11.95


Perhaps the most common hand weapon among Vikings was the axe – swords were more expensive to make and only wealthy warriors could afford them. The prevalence of axes in archaeological sites can likely be attributed to its role as not just a weapon, but also a common tool.

Some axe heads were inlaid with silver designs. In the later Viking era, there were axe heads with crescent shaped edges measuring up to 45 centimeters called breiðöx (broad axe).


This pendant is 4cm accross on a 57cm thin twisted glossy cord with a metal clasp at the end.
