Kodiak Ceremonial Battle Ax

Kodiak Ceremonial Battle Ax


The General had seen war. Death and destruction...and for what purpose? He watched the obsession of the King empty the nations coffers and drive him mad, and he could sense the Eldingar blade was the source. Reason and logic could not sway the King, and he moved to surround himself with loyalty more than intellect as he collapsed inward. The nation was on the brink of disaster...and it was the General's fault.

Decades ago he was sent on a secret mission to find a legendary blacksmith deep in the mountains. He had succeeded where so many others had failed. The blacksmith had forged the battle ax and intricately imbued it with ancient magic. Many seasons passed as the General waited for the completed weapon. Late in the summer evening, the blacksmith arrived unannounced to the General's quarters. In the flickering candle light, he presented the ax for the king...but also a heavy metal box adorned with inscriptions and sealed shut.

"This is for you," he said to the General, "but you must promise to only open it when the time is right."
"And how will I know when the time is right?" the General responded.
The Blacksmith carefully wrapped the King's ax in folds of leather and burlap, and handed it to the General. Before releasing the package, he locked eyes with the General. "You will know."

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 that would surely have the king come back to haunt you...out of sheer disappointment.

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

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


Oh, you want to know more? Just send me a note to discuss your ideas!

-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!
