This is hand forged baltoslavic axe by Ancient Smithy, it is made it from 52100 (100Cr6) steel. Steel 52100 (100Cr6) has better cutting properties and more protected from rust. Cutting edge is forged. The handle is made from ash and with carved Scandinavian pattern, has leather wrap in the middle. Comes with a leather sheath. Very cool axe. Has some light scuffs, otherwise excellent condition.
