Two-Lugged Beard Axe


Historical Axes are not in production and unavailable in the US.

The two-lugged beard axe is characterized by two lugs below the eye and was often quite big and heavy. It has a short handle, and a long-extended edge. The beard axe was used primarily as a tool for woodwork and for cutting and smoothing planks. This replica, forged by hand, is based on an 11th century axe found in Gothem on the island of Gotland. The original axe is exhibited at the Museum of National Antiquities in Stockholm.
