Odin Viking Ax; Damascus Blade

$99.00 $110.00



Details

When the cold winds blow and the trees shed their last coat of leaves, this Viking Ax appears to carry the villagers of the North through the winter months. Only the mightiest of warriors get to wield the damascus blade, swirling full of Odin's blessings. It has been known to make the ladies swoon for the unwashed beards of it's owners, so be careful who you reveal it to!

Short on stature at 18" long with a 6" rough cast blade, this gift ax is designed with beauty in mind, but is built to break stuff. The leather wrapped rosewood handle is ready for your pillaging needs!

Disclaimer: This is a real ax with a sharp blade. Watch your fingers when you're chopping the watermelons for the Viking brunch. You assume all responsibility for safe use upon receipt.

*There will be variations in the wood grain and damascus pattern. Each is hand crafted, so there may be slight imperfections.

BLADE CARE:
1095 high carbon and Damascus Steel are great at holding an edge, but will rust and stain if not taken care of properly. Please clean and dry your blade after use, and apply a light coat of oil (gun oil, coconut oil, canola...almost any clear oil) in order to protect the blade and add longevity.

Bought this for a friend as a graduation/Christmas gift. He absolutely loves it. Travis did such a great job and it is a very high quality blade. A testament to Travis’ pride in his work is the fact that he gave me a partial refund because he was unhappy with a detail on just one side of the blade. Travis is a fantastic craftsmen and should be very proud of his work. I can not recommend this store enough. Travis is an excellent blacksmith and the AIM Blades forge is an excellent business. I look forward to what I’m sure will be many orders in the future.

Frequently Asked Questions

Custom and personalized orders

Of course! That's what this is shop is all about. Polished blades are great for adding beautiful etching, and the wood handles can be engraved with anything from initials to a hand written signature, a corporate logo to your kid's drawing of, uh, an alien? person? Three legged hedgehog? Whatever it is, we can likely engrave it! Keep in mind the size a handle is, which limits the size and detail.

Here's the breakdown of basic customization:
Engrave one side: $15. No set up fee or by the letter fee.
Engrave two sides: +$10 ($25 total)
Etching: Varies by complexity, but usually about $25.

Think big. Send me a message with your thoughts! I'll discount for big orders like weddings. I know money is tight!

Care instructions

1095 high carbon and damascus steel will hold an edge very well, but they are not stainless steel. It may take on color with lots of use, and should be dried and oiled, if possible, to prevent rust. If you do get some rust, I prefer giving it a quick rub with a very fine (000) steel wool and it usually easily takes care of it without scratching the metal.

I wouldn't go chipping away at rocks, but they're pretty tough and should last you a long time!

Corporate Gifts or Awards

These are usually orders of 15+. We can do almost any amount given enough time.

You can engrave names or logos on the handles. You can replace my AIM logo with your own etched into the blade, or we can make a custom metal stamp of your logo for the leather sheaths.

Just remember, these are custom made and hand crafted, so we need months, not weeks. The more customized, the more time we need! They look ridiculously awesome, so bring it on!

Custom and personalized orders

Yes. Oh, you want more? Just send me a note to discuss!
Notes:
-Engraving goes on the wood handles, and possibly the leather sheaths. It's a laser engraver, so burning the image in. I can fill it with color on the handles, but not the sheaths. It can do fairly detailed images, EVEN HAND DRAWN PICTURES AND WRITING. Be creative!

-Etching goes on the metal. It looks great on the polished metal, but can be hard to see on the damascus. This need to be less detailed. Think words, numbers, basic designs.

I will do full custom jobs for larger orders, including blade designs, handle materials, custom deep etched logos (instead of the AIM), custom leather stamps on the sheath, etc. Your corporate gifts can be awesome!
