Description: Every so often, a maker creates a work of art that is truly exceptional. When that maker is someone such as Kaj Embretsen -- a maker that we expect his work as a whole to be exceptional -- the result is beyond belief. The sheer mass of the Damascus is intimidating. The Damascus crown has been fileworked, with the skull crasher at the base of the handle sharpened to a point. The Axe head has a profiled cutting edge and a spike.
The Viking War Axe has been in a single collection since it was first sold by us several years ago. It is in new condition and has been taken care of meticulously. An exceptional piece!
