  • Jambiya Curved Dagger

    A jambiya is the traditional curved dagger that you find wherever the Arabic culture flourishes. It represents a status symbol for the man wearing it, and is most often worn on a belt. Status aside, thanks to its elegantly curved, double-edged blade a jambiya is a very efficient weapon. The center rib that runs from the crossguard to the point on both sides is designed to give this dagger an extraordinarily high degree of stability.

It comes with a leather-covered wooden scabbard.

  • Danish Hand Axe

    In the ranks of the Huscarls, the bodyguard of Scandinavian nobles and kings, axes of various sizes were a very popular weapon. The Huscarls often used the Danish axe with their left hand to attack the side of the enemy not protected by a shield. Pictures of the Danish axe can be found, for example, on the Bayeux Tapestry and date to the second half of the 11th century.

    Smaller beard axes such as this Danish hand axe had evolved from Francisca and served the Huscarls primarily as devastating throwing axes, but were also used in close combat. A distinctive feature is the relatively long blade cutting, which tapers sharply towards the shaft. The blade encloses the shaft made of wood and is riveted to it. The shaft is largely straight but is widened at the lower end towards the blade, which improves the handling discreetly.

    Length: 53cm
    Weight: 680g

    All dimensions are approximate and may vary from piece to piece.
