41" Barbarian Battle Axe - AFSD402
Harald considers this Battle Axe the crowning achievement of his career.
Inspired by the “Conan the Barbarian” movies, the design came to Harald literally overnight.
During the planning and creation of this formidable weapon, numerous technical and design challenges presented themselves. First and foremost, this battle axe was intended to be better than functional and completely battle ready.
After several scale model tests, Harald perfected the shape that he had seen in his dream.
The first challenge encountered was the choice of material to be used for the 10” diameter axe head.
With a long history in the precision machining trade, Harald was intimately familiar with the properties of the best steels available. The steel he ultimately chose for his battle axe is a ½” thick D-2 chrome alloy – the type of steel used to cut steel.
Thus fitted, this battle axe could easily chop a ½” copper cable in two without doing any damage to the blade.
The next next technical hurdle came in the form of creating and attaching a fail-proof shaft. For this task, Harald designed and built a custom-made nut to hold the head in place, then added two extra tapered pins for additional strength.
A stainless steel shaft runs all the way through the handle, screwing into the 3” Titanium Pommel.
All other fittings are Titanium and the handle itself has a core with a wrapped stainless steel marine cable.
The two sets of claws (spanning 6 ¾” on top and 5” on the bottom set) are actually made of 10 parts. The challenge here was that one side of the claws had to be made with male and female left hand thread (all turned on a metal lathe) and the other side had to be male and female right hand thread. These claws took days and days to make and took all the skill and experience Harald could master.
The wooden part of the handle is polished South American Cocobolo, selected for it's beauty and strength.
The total weight of this Barbarian Battle Axe is well over 12 pounds.
Comes with a solid walnut handcrafted display stand.
This battle axe is a special collectors Signet Series item, not likely ever to be made again and comes with a Signet Series Certificate.
