Ragnar Lodbrok (or Ragna Lothbrok) was historically famous as a legendary man who started life as a lowly farmer who participated in periodic raids upon other lands, as Vikings historically portrays. Ragnar became King of the Norse and struck many historical treaties and raided many European countries, gaining respect for his strength in battle. This axe is a rendition of what Ragnar Lodbrock would have carried and fought with. It features a stainless steel axe head (bit) and hardwood handle with natural stain. Leather wraps the handle and decorates the length of the wood. It comes with a wooden wall hanger plaque. Each piece is carved and assembled by hand from natural materials and may contain some minor differences between each piece. If you plan to use the axe functionally, we recommend sharpening with a stone and adding the proper nail to the handle above the axe bit.
