Description

The Viking Hand Axe is a design collaboration between Lynn C Thompson, Dave Baker and Rich McDonald. It features a stout 30" straight grain American Hickory, an extra broad, sharp cutting edge, a hooking "beard", and up-swept thrusting "horn" to make a formidable fighting axe that would be the pride of any Viking’s collection!

Killer price with killer fit and finish problems

I had already viewed several YouTube reviews of this axe and knew well ahead of time to expect something in an insultingly unfinished state.

Really if Cold Steel was being honest they would send the head unattached to the shaft with no set screw as a insult to the buyers intelligence. That set screw ain't going to do didily to hold the head on if you actually try to use it as an axe out of box. It took me several hours of sharpening the head and rounding the edges of the female portion of the axe head to match the handle. Then sanding the handle to fit right. The original installation of Axe head to handle did no favors to the wood on the handle (basically the unfinished axe head caused heavy chipping on the wood handle) which necessitated much more sanding before I felt the axe would be usable as an axe.

For the price I do like it. I do not mind having it as a project, it was fun to get the head fitting right to the handle and then getting it razor-sharp.

That being said I would gladly pay $76 (literally over twice as much as the current list price) if there were no f$#@^&× set screw and the fit and finish was there to begin with.



Ouch my eye!

Let's start with the head of the axe: not bad for $35. As expected it needed to be sharpened, no big deal. I'm happy with it.

Now let's get to the handle. Oh boy. The handle has at least a 3/4" bow to it if not more. It will hurt your eyes to look down it. The head is loose even though it is screwed on. Whoever shafted this axe should be beaten with a crooked axe handle. The wood at the top of the axe head is all curled up where they beat it on. I would rather have done it myself. Need a new handle.
