Limited Edition Axes and Pole Arms by Jody Samson


Hel Broadaxe
We named this one after the famous battle axe of King Magnus.

BATTLE OF HLYRSKOG HEATH.
King Magnus threw off from him his coat of ring-mail, and had a red silk shirt outside over his clothes, and had in his hands the battle-axe called Hel, which had belonged to King Olaf. King Magnus ran on before all his men to the enemy's army, and instantly hewed down with both hands every man who came against him. So says Arnor, the earls' skald: --
"His armour on the ground he flung
His broad axe round his head he swung;
And Norway's king strode on in might,
Through ringing swords, to the wild fight.
His broad axe Hel with both hands wielding,
Shields, helms, and skulls before it yielding,
He seemed with Fate the world to share,
And life or death to deal out there."
-- From the Heimskringla or The Chronicle of the Kings of Norway, Saga of Magnus the Good

Mimir Broadaxe
We named this one after the famous smith of Norse legend.

In the Norwegian epic called Thiğrekssaga, Mimir was the great smith who was the first master to teach Velent (Wayland), as well as being the foster father of the hero Sigurd. Mimir also realised that his foster son was dangerous, so he conspired to have Sigurd killed. Mimir decided to send Sigurd into the forest to fetch charcoal for him. In the forest, lived his brother, Regin, who was now the most feearsome dragon in the world. Mimir hoped that he would be sending his foster son to his death. Sigurd set out into the forest, unsuspecting of any plot. Mimir had provided Sigurd with an axe, as well as food and wine for nine days.

The axe head is cast from an original wax, hand-carved by Jody, in 6150 steel, hand heat-treated edge to 56 HRC. The axe hs been darkened, with a polished edge.
Sharpening by Jody available on request for an additional $25.
No hafts are currently available and is sold as the axe-head only for customers to fit to their own haft.
