Torden Ceremonial Battle Ax

Torden Ceremonial Battle Ax

Sorry, this item has sold.

I am amazed that you are reading this. What is this power that enables you to tear your eyes away from the beauty of the Torden Battle Ax? Please take pity on us mere mortals.

Centuries ago, this carbon steel blade was forged from the armor of ancient stone giants and painstakingly hand etched with images of protection and valor. Before it could be affixed to a handle however, a great earthquake split the earth and swallowed the ax head into the darkness. There it lay in silence, slowly absorbing power until it was unearthed by a simple shepherd digging a pit for his evening fire. Through the long, cold nights of the next winter, the man carefully carved a handle for the found treasure from the branch of a tree that had been struck by lightning. As the warm breezes of spring filled the valley, the man took his newly completed ax to the high plains with his flock. As the sun began to set, he began to gather wood for a fire. At the first swing, the ax sliced cleanly through the thick log and bit deep into the earth, causing a crack to shoot across the hill and split so fast it swallowed two of his sheep.

The legend of the Shepherd and his Torden Battle Ax grew over the years, as did his status. First towns, then cities, then full nations fell in line or fell in battle. But this ax was destined to return back to the earth. While crossing a vast sea to conquer the powerful city of Skargsbord, a great storm engulfed the fleet and Shepherd and his great ax were lost. Until now. Tread carefully my friend.

With a powerful stature at 20" long with a 7.5x7.5" blade, this ax is an intricate work of art for display or carry. This ax was entirely hand made and will surely be the highlight of any collection. Can you use it to chop wood? Yes, it is a fully functional ax. But why would you risk splitting your lawn and losing sheep?

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


BLADE CARE:
1085 high carbon is 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

Care instructions

1085 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 (0000) steel wool and it usually easily takes care of it without scratching the metal.

You can use WD40 or rust remover, just be sure to clean the blade thoroughly before use, especially if using it for food.

The key is keeping it dry. Any moisture that sits on the metal will cause rust. That being said, I've had some in my drawer for years with no issues!

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

Wedding Party / Corporate Gifts

Everything you see in the listings is in stock, but we may not have the quantity you need. Send me a note with any questions.

For large custom orders:
These are usually orders of 10+, and you can go full custom. 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 to know more? Just send me a note to discuss your ideas!

Notes:
-ENGRAVING goes on the wood handles. It's a laser engraver, so burning the image in. It can do fairly detailed images, even your drawn pictures and handwriting. Be creative! Engraving has a quick turn around.

-ETCHING goes on the metal. It looks great on the polished metal, but can be hard to see on the damascus. This needs to be less detailed. Think words, numbers, basic designs. WE ONLY DO THIS FOR LARGE ORDERS (10+). This takes time.

We 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 gifts can be awesome!
