The troldøkse or troll axe, is a favorite of the close combat axes, not made for wood splitting or any homestead tasks, this is a 12th century version of a trench weapon. The head is made of D2 steel, pressure fit and sealed into a rosewood haft. Weather sealed and sharpened to a knife edge, both heads are sharp so you cut rather than chop both coming and going. A lethal close combat weapon. Short enough for use in confined spaces such as hall ways and inside the home, but long enough to build massive centrifugal force in the swing. A terrifying weapon to behold and a comforting weapon to hold.
