ACB Bearded Axe

A Bearded Axe from the Reinassance

A bearded axe is a type of axe that has been used since the 6th century, and it is commonly associated with the Vikings.


The lower portion of the axe bit extending the cutting edge below the width of the butt is referred to as the "hook" or "beard", and provides a wide cutting surface while keeping the overall weight of the axe low. Efficiently used in combat to pull a weapon or shield from an enemy's grip.[1]


Viking Age[]

Bearded axes were used by the Vikings in combat. Occasionally they were dual-wielded.[2]


By the time of the Renaissance a "Bearded Axe" was a heavy bladed two-handed battle axe.[3] This inaccurate description was also carried onto the Ottoman Empire.[4]
