Medieval Re-Enactment Axes

Medieval Re-Enactment Axes

The battle axe was first made around 6,000BC, from stone and has been used successfully in battle by numerous peoples and cultures including the Vikings and Ancient Romans. The Medieval weapon was made by a blacksmith and often had a head (or blade) made of iron, steel, bronze or copper alloy. The handle was made of wood. Part of the metal from the blade would go down into the wooden handle to give the Medieval axe strength and stability when used in battle.


Battle axes were originally thrown at targets, a skill that was perfected by the Vikings and later the people in the lands they conquered. However, axe throwing became replaced by archery around the Middle Ages, though the handheld battle axe was still heavily used in battle.


Medieval axes were able to deliver severe, sometimes fatal blows to soldiers and knights wearing full armour. By the mid-Medieval period, however, handheld battle axes gave way to swords as the prominent Medieval weapon of choice. Whether you’re looking for a Medieval axe to enhance or complete your early Medieval period costume or want something impressive to add to your private arms collection that you can proudly display, Historical Reproductions has a variety of axes and other Medieval weapons made by Get Dressed for Battle to choose from.
