Battle Axe History

The battle axe, commonly spelled "battle ax", has been used in ancient warfare for thousands of years. The first stoned axe may have been produced around 6000 BC. These battle axes have come in many forms, shapes, and sizes. They have been created from stone, bronze, iron, steel, and from other metals.

Battle Axes were typically between one and six pounds in weight and anywhere from one to five feet in length. The advantage of axes was that they could double as tools and weapons. Axes were often much cheaper than swords and more available thus providing an explanation as to why they were often used in war.

Although the axe is typically associated with the Viking era, the splitting axe (also commonly spelled "splitting ax") is still used today. It is common for felling trees or splitting wood. You never know when they will come in handy. So check out our broad selection of medieval axes now!
