Detailed Description

Gransfors Bruks Ancient Collection Bearded Axe with Eye Socket

Gransfors Bruks Ancient Axes Collection - Hand forged to order by Lars Enander. Please order well in advance of need as delivery date cannot be estimated.

A northern European axe dating from the early part of the 12th century. Axes with eye-sockets made their breakthrough in the early Middle Ages in Europe. A characteristic of this axe is the long, sturdy eye-socket, and also its wide edge. The bearded axe with its eye-socket was developed from the two-lugged axe type and was used for timbering and splitting logs. It was probably also used for carpentry. This replica, forged by hand, is based on a number of similar axe types from the early Middle Ages.
