* Viking Axes *
Viking long axes were always made specifically for warfare and battles. These weapons were used to hack at opponents from a safer distance than could be done with a hand axe.
Viking and Medieval Battle Axes. The Battle Axe was a crucial instrument since the Stone Age. Viking warriors are thought to be the first Europeans to make a large Battle Axe just for war. Since swords were not effectively useful against plate armor, maces, axes and war hammers were preferred by foot soldiers during the middle ages.
