Rommunds ornamental Axe, Viking Axe from Gotland

The axe head was hand-forged from high carbon steel. Its particular shape shows plant ornamentation elements and its dimensions are true to the original early medieval Gotlandic find, which may have been used both as a battle axe and working axe and can be admired at the Swedish history museum (Statens historiska museum, also known as Historiska museet) in Stockholm.
