The Raven Forged Bearded Ax is a fully custom made Nordic inspired bearded ax. Forged from super tough 80CRV2 steel, it is a true working ax, not just a collectors' item as it appears. The neck features a Viking knotwork design forged into the steel and the handle scales are linen Micarta textured with an interlocking Celtic pattern. It comes with a custom Chattanooga Leather Works scabbard and leather Baldric ring for belt or MOLLE carry that are adorned with a Celtic pattern. The Raven also includes a wooden box with laser engraved touches, an a leather patch. The Raven is designed, forged, and finished by our inhouse blacksmith Reid Carmack.
Due to the handmade nature, the listed dimensions are approximate, each ax will vary in size slightly.
There are two styles to chose from, a straight handle, or a curved handled model. Both are pictured together.
