Hello,
I am looking for a 14th ax (rather 1300-1350), if you have any source I would be happy to see them.
If you experience sites have my 14th transmètre archéoligique can you play?
Forgive my poor English.
Thanking you in advance.

You mean a 14th century axe, Jordan?
Here's an example found on a French manuscript from 1300-1350. But I am sorry that I can't find you a real one.

Go for a Hanwei Viking axe or a Cold Steel Norse Hawk,,,,,,You can't go wrong either way. They are all built like tanks and can be used as weapons or tools, Good deals there for not much money. Big Grin ..............McM

Hi Markus,

Can I ask you how confident you are of Axe 7's 2nd half of the 14th century dating? I'm curious because I just bought this very similar axe at today's Bonham auction (reason being I sold a ton of my stuff at the same auction). Bonham's attributes it to the 17th century. Of course, I would be very happy if Bonham's is wrong and it is in fact 14th century!


Axe 1: 14th or 15th century, 3.63 x 22.1 cm
Axe 2: early 14th century, 24 x 20 cm
Axe 3: early 14th century, 19.5 x 15.7 cm
Axe 4: throwing axe, 14th century, 14.5 x 20 cm
Axe 5: 14th century (no measurements given)
Axe 6: 14th or 15th century (no measurements given)
Axe 7: 2nd half of the 14th century, blade length 13.8 cm
