The Viking axe was one of the most common weapons used by the ancient medieval Norse warriors. The Middle Age Norsemen used two basic types of axes as weapons, the hand axe and the long axe.
When going off to war, most Vikings could not afford a weapon made specifically for battle, like a sword. They would often grab the same axe they used for woodcutting to serve as their weapon. The hand axe was certainly not a very glamorous weapon. It was however, a very effective and deadly weapon.
Skilled warriors could turn an opponents shield into splinters with their hand axe and easily kill them in close combat.
