Detailed Description

Gransfors Bruk Ancient Collection Four-Lugged Chopping Axe

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

A Norwegian axe from the 7th century which was developed into a western Scandinavian type. It is characterized by its four eye-lugs: two above and two below the eye. The axe has a relatively wide, curved edge. Archaeological findings indicate that this type of axe probably formed part of people's personal equipment. It was used both as a hatchet and as a working axe, but also as as weapon in battle before the actual battle axe was developed. This replica, forged by hand, is based on an axe dating back to the 9th century, and was found in Skåne in the southern part of Sweden. The original axe is exhibited at the Museum Kulturen in Lund.

Comes with leather sheath


Straight handle: 60 cm
Length of edge: 12 cm
Weight incl. handle: Approx. 1 kg
