A true collectors item for those who value expert hand-crafting skills.
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. It originates from the forge of a Swedish expert smith who has decateds of experience in accurate historical forging.
The Blade: Based on the early 11th Century Viking axe found in the River Thames. The thin blade features the characteristic, thick steel edge that has been meticulously added to the iron body with ancient techniques - just like on the original.
The Shaft: Handmade from Swedish ash as was customary during the Viking Age. The upper part of the shaft has brass decorations as seen in the Bjorå axe today located in Lundehall (museumnr. C29866).
The Sheath: The wooden sheath is handmade according to a find from Sigtuna in Sweden - a city founded by King Eric the Victorious in 980.
