Genja is the impressive two-handed axe highly valued by the Vikings and equally feared by their foes. Unlike many other historical reproductions, it is fully handmade and forged according to ancient Viking techniques. The shaft matches the head in terms of craftsmanship and beauty. It is made of Swedish ash with Viking motifs skillfully hand-carved into the wood. Matching motifs have also been added to the head and the leather protector.
Genja is a limited edition item originating from the forge Grimfrost’s expert smith, who has more than 25 years of experience in accurate historic forging. He has been awarded the Swedish Master's certificate – a rare qualification that entitles him to the rank of Master smith. His craft can be found where quality and authenticity are essential, such as in museums, among experimental archeologists and collectors.
