Sturdy wooden battle axe with a painted blade and riveted handle. Our wooden toys encourage imaginative role play and are made from sustainable wood sources.
Battle axes were used by the Romans and the Vikings and would have been a favourite weapon of many a Medieval knight. Halbards and Poleaxes which are longer versions of a battle axe were used during Tudor times and by Roundhead soldiers during the Civil War.
Perfect for going once more into the breach!
All our wooden toys are made from sustainable wood grown in a managed forest in Bavaria. The family firm that makes them has their workshops in the forest and each toy is hand crafted using traditional techniques and harmless dyes.
Every purchase you make supports the work of Shakespeare's Globe. Thank you!
