- Historically Accurate
- Fully Functional
- High-Carbon Blade

As an inexpensive and fast and easy-to-produce type of armament, this axe was very popular among the Franks in the 5th and 6th centuries. Usually the Francisca was thrown from the enemy from about 10 meters away, only then came the swords and shields used. Thanks to the blade of solid steel, a hit can cause devastating injuries, which has been impressively demonstrated by recent investigations. Our Francisca Throwing Axe s one of the best available to buy in the UK. The straight, hardwood-made shaft is easily held, so that the maximum kinetic energy of a hit on the head of the axe lies. Not least because of the Francisca were the Franks feared warriors.

- Blade length: 9cm
- Handle length: 46cm
- Weight: 539g
- Thickness at Guard: 0.6cm
Specs will vary slightly from piece to piece.
