Product description

Francisca axe Rhenen

The francisca is characterized by its distinctly arch-shaped head, widening toward the cutting edge and terminating in a prominent point at both the upper and lower corners. The top of the head is usually either S-shaped or convex with the lower portion curving inward and forming an elbow with the short wooden haft. Sometimes the head is more upswept forming a wider angle with the haft. Most franciscas have a round or teardrop-shaped eye designed to fit the tapered haft, similar to Viking axes. Based on the measurements of modern replicas the francisca had a haft length of around 40-45 cm (16-18 in) and a 10 cm (4 in) cutting edge with an average weight of around 600 g (21 oz, 1.3 lb).

  • 15*9*3,6 cm – approx. size of the axe head
  • 395 mm - approx.  shaft length
  • shaft from ash wood
  • sharp ground!
  • weight approx. 736 g

This reconstruction of the Francisca axe Rhenen came into existence thanks to Mr. Robert Wimmers from Archeologie Beleven !
