"Power is only given to those who are prepared to lower themselves to pick it up" - Ragnar Lothbrok
This axe is inspired by Ragnar Lothbrok's axe in the TV show Vikings; this is the same product as our Ragnar hatchet, only burnt black with a lot of thick, black, genuine leather - fully wrapped for an extra gnarly finish. It is 18" overall, and made from sharp, hardened steel for a fully functional finish. The axe comes complete and finished with a genuine leather sheath with belt loops.
Burning black is an old blacksmiths trick to smooth the handle and prevent getting blisters whilst they hammer all day. It wraps the wood in a layer of carbon that's highly resistant to mould, insects, water and even fire. It also hardens the wood, making it less likely to crack or splinter. This process is called "Charring" - burning and rubbing in oil whilst the wood is still hot/warm.
