Medieval War Axe

Few would dispute that the medieval knight’s favourite weapon was his sword. But many favoured the raw cutting power of the battle axe. In the hands of a skilled knight or man-at-arms, battle axes could be wielded with devastating force. Indeed it was the favourite weapon of some of the greatest warriors in history – King Robert the Bruce being one of them.


Our Medieval War Axe is crafted from steel with a wooden shaft. The head is decorated with 3 crosses and it features a pick on the back for penetrating armour. This axe has a blunt blade and is manufactured for display.
