And here is another one by the same maker: It's a smaller one handed one but could be easily scaled up to Danish axe dimensions and this one has a fully hardened edge on a softer body and more custom than their standard version.

Hi Arthur,

Arms and Armor is currently making me a custom dane axe. It is going to have very similar lines to the example posted by Jean, but will be scaled up to a full sized dane axe. I will third the recommendation that you give them a call.

While I'm not sure if its within your price range Paul Binns does phenomenal work

Unfortunately I have just moved house and haven't quite gotten around to setting up my forge/workshop or I'd offer to make you one to spec.

You can also talk to the Stagmers at Baltimore Knife and Sword. While they are generally known for their swords they also do axes.

Hope that helps,
