Valhalla Ax; Damascus Steel, Stained Ash Handle

Sorry, this item has sold.


If you're headed to Valhalla, this is the battle ax you want burned on your funeral pyre. Truth be told, the other vikings will probably use it to chop the wood for your ceremonial cremation and conveniently "forget" to throw it on the pile. You can haunt them later. For now, enjoy the ridiculous beauty that it brings you. Rumor has it, your beard gains 5 inches by merely holding it.*

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

There will be variations in the wood grain!

*Not a Promise.

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.

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!
-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!
