Category: Gear

The vikings certainly knew how to make great weapons. Zombie Tools, blade forgers from Montana, have crafted a viking battle axe-inspired weapon which they’ve dubbed the Kraken, and it’s definitely ready for battle.

The axe, which is the company’s rendition of the bearded Norse war axe, is 27-inches long, with 7.75-inches of that being all blade. The butt of the axe also sports a 2.5-inch blade. The entire weapon weighs just four pounds. It comes with a two-part blade cover bound by a length of shock-cord to protect you when it’s not in use. This hand-forged blade requires a 7-9 week wait time after ordering, and it’s available now for $375. [Purchase]
