Hallo, I am a man who is very interesting in Viking Axes. I that time, viking axes was made it three ways - first one - from one piece, with pierced hole, the second - with the hole welded and wrapped, and the third one - with blade warmed from other different steel. The proces of hardened was thick sand.

Hello Damian Sulowski, can you talk about the process of hardening sand? Greetings. Thank you.

No study in the English language, as far as I know. It strikes me that the lady who did the Anglo-Saxon weapons book (Davidson?) may have included some material in her book. Ellis Behmer also strikes me as a possibility, but he would be Swedish or Danish, IIRC. There are probably some in the deeper reaches of academia. I am almost certain you could find studies in Swedish, Danish, or Norwegian, German, possibly Russian. French might be a long shot but it's possible.

This is one of the problems of studying arms and armour in depth-- it was never as much a priority in the Anglosphere as it was in continental Europe, so there's far more material out there that's never been translated into English than was ever published in English to start with.

Interesting!
I am currently very interested in this information even if not in English.

There i also typologie of Nadolski but, the typologie of Petersen is the best. To the hardening with sand... you must heat the axe up to 850 degree Celsius to light orange colour - then you must dip the axe in thisk sand and live it in it. Afer an hour, you must warm the edge to 200 - 350 degree Celsius (depends of the type of steel) to blue colour, and then dip it in wather. The secound process is "tempering steel" . That is one of the Scandinavian way. And on the picture is my last axe type C Petersen.
