Double-edged Persian Axe with ornaments

Please note: This is just an ornamental item, not intended for real use!

Persians most commonly carried sturdy axes that could be thrown or swung with head-splitting force. An axe head was mostly wrought iron, with a steel cutting edge. This made the weapon less expensive than a sword, and was a standard item produced by blacksmiths, historically. Like most other Scandinavian weaponry, axes were often given names.
