Derivation of a Viking axe

Ve starověku měly sekery i své rituální funkce při obětování zvířat, používaly se např. na starověké Krétě v Mínojské kultuře - známá je posvátná sekera Labrys z pověsti o řeckém hrdinovi Théseovi. Bojové modely ze sekce Předgotické sekyry (Vik., Kelt.) a Gotické sekyry vyrábíme jako repliky zbraní - ty se od seker určených např. pro dřevorubce podstatně liší. Topůrka mají delší a těžší a břit mohou mít na obou stranách, eventuálně mají na druhé straně i hrot. Hrot může být i ve směru topůrka (topůrko se pak zasouvá do prohlubně, nikoliv do otvoru). Válečné verze byly užívány zejména v severní Evropě a proslavily je nejvíce Vikingové. Nabízíme také sekery outdoorové a vrhací sekery.

Advisory Service: Questions and Answers

What is the difference between industrially rolled and hand-forged blades?

In the case of hand-forged blades, our blacksmith takes the already rolled spring steel and forges it by hand on the anvil or under the drop hammer. The steel gets more solid (denser) by forging. In the case of industrially rolled spring steel blades, the sheets of steel plate is cut to strips under drop snips, then ground or milled and immediately forged into the annealing furnace and oil-quenched. The properties of both kinds of steels are not very different, since industrial rolling is already very good! On forged blades are usually blacksmith marks, which give them an authentic and unique look.
