Hello,
I have an axe that has been in the basement for I think about 10 years give or take. I am not absolutely sure what it is. I think it might be an English Horseman's Axe. If anyone has some old MRL catalogs, or just remembers it please let me know. I do not know why I bought it and it certainly doesn't fit my Viking Era collection.

Hmmm.....You sure that's a Windy? It doesn't look really familiar. WTF?! ............McM

Yep, took off the INDIA mark myself. And I used to be addicted to the MRL magazines.

If MRL sold Deepeeka many years ago, then maybe. That is what I am here to find out. Wink

FWIW, it's very similar to their Gothic Battle Axe. Might be an earlier version or something.

That's a very old MRL piece. I don't remember the name or any details but I remember wanting it 15 years ago.
