The axe has been used throughout history as a tool. Because of its versitility, it was also used as weapon. Almost every household had and axe and in times of war or in an emergeny it used be used to deadly effect by almost anybody - trained or not.
While most axes can be used as either a tool or as a weapon, this axe is made for one thing and that is for battle. The crescent shape allows the blow to be focused over a small area allowing for deep cuts. The hollow in the axe head lightens the weapon making it very fast without compromising the integrity of the hand forged head but it does sacrifice a bit of impact power for speed.
The edge is hand forged from EN 45 spring steel and is semi-sharp - it can be filed down for re-enactment combat or sharpened to demonstrate cutting power.:
