Traditional design with Andras own take. The Ax steel is 56SiCr7 and the cutting edge is tempered to Rockwell 55-58.
Below are pictures that András sent us. The Viking Axes are toward the top, right, with lighter-colored handles. The piece at bottom is a Damascus Hatchet, which we are also happy to offer. All of these pieces come with a beautiful sheath made by András himself. The sheath / leatherwork also includes a belt-collar that enables the Hatchet to be carried comfortably on the belt. The leatherwork is serious craftsmanship, as are the Axes. Andras is doing some great things in his shop!!
Here are specs on the Viking Axes. The axe heads are the same, the handles a little bit different. The lighter-colored Handle has a bigger shoulder, and is about an inch (2.5 cm) longer than the other.

Cutting edge is 5-1/2 inches (14 cm) from point to point

Handle extends a little beyond the head, and the Wedge and Handle are both matched in a perfect point that parallels the Lugs
