hi all
i have been looking for a while now to get a dane axe made on one found in dublin and a bearded hand axe for reenactment use. they are not fancy but i want a reasonable price and them to be sturdy. i tried binns but he tends to have a long waiting list so can anyone help? also does anyone know where i can get a poll axe i heard talk of some for sale at tewksbury for 100 pounds which is nice so can you help?
thanks in advance.

I got a good Dane hand axe from a rather 'mainstream' site in the UK. Some of the older members might frown on me but try www.theknightshop.co.uk infact here's the link. http://www.theknightshop.co.uk/catalog/axes-c...ede75c91a5

These people do one, but not based on a Dublin find. What price is reasonable, don't know, but these are supposed to be sturdy.

Gransfors Bruks has an excellent reputation for making quality modern axes. When I got my felling axe, I bought a Snow and Nealley, but if I'd had the money, I'd have gotten a Gransfors Bruks. I would assume their ancient axe line is well-researched and also of excellent quality.

You can try contacting Tomas Cederroth. He's located in Stockholm and has a good reputation among swedish reenactors. Here are some pics of stuff he have made:

He is the one called spaxe.
