viking axe

Post by hellize » Mon Aug 10, 2020 8:53 pm

Happy pre-Thor's day!
It's never too early to celebrate the god of thunder and fertility! :D
I have a freshly finished viking's axe to show
It has a 5 inch long edge and a 18 inch long shaft.

You are too kind! :) It is just a simple axe, but I am happy that you like it.

It may have been simple for you, Helize, but the lines are perfect. If one does not have the artist's eye, even a small deviation from perfect can ruin the finished art. I have seen a number of these viking axes that are 'just not right.' Yours is 'right.'
