With the reciept of my new Cresent Trifoil Axe from Matthew Stagmer of Baltimore Knife Company, I thought I would post my axes. (edited because this post was merged into an existing thread).

The second photo includes:

1) Cresent Trifoil Axe from Baltimore Knife Company
2) Danish Axe from Arms & Armour
3) Ilse of Hebridean Axe from Albion
4) Francisca Axe from Hanwei

Great axes!

I like the cord on Dane axe, Albion one's sweet, so is Baltimore Knife Company's one.


What's with Baltimore axe's handle? Looks like two colors? Two types of wood? But that would be a bit weird...

Allen, great collection. I'm wanting to start building my axe collection up more. I currently have one of those old Cold Steel Pole Axe I'm working on fixing up. My have to steel your idea on the trifoil axe. I love it! two different stains i assume?

That's correct. I used an Oxblood colored stain on the top so that the blood didn't clash with color on the haft. The rest of it is tinted with a pecan stain. I don't think (or know) if it's historical, but it does make it a lot easier to find the weapon among all the carnage after a battle. Big Grin


Patrick, Your Eric McHugh axe is one that I've always wanted but could never afford. Knowing how it was constructed, I've always considered it among the crem della crem of axes. Thanks for posting these great photos. Happy

Thanks Allen, this axe is one of my top three favorites in my collection and Eric did a great job on it. I just noticed I posted it twice, that's what I get for posting after working all night!

Both where made by Ragnar Windal

Thought you might like a look at this. This is the genuine article, a Jeddart Axe circa 1480 to 1520, with its original woodwork.
There are only 3 I know of and this is the only one with an original shaft. The blade is 26".
Sorry, but that's all I can give you, as since I'm now "retired", writing books is one of my means of putting bread on my table, so anyone wants more will just have to buy my little "Death Resurrection and the Sword"! 9 + p.p. There's some good stuff on the Lowland Scots daggers in there too. But so much strange has been written on this subject (Jeddart Axes) that I thought you ought to see one from someone who lives "on the ground" as it were.
Its the best staff weapon I've ever handled, (and I've handled a few.)

New polearm - a bec de corbin or bec de faucon. It came from Tod's Stuff on a short staff but I rehafted it as a polearm this weekend with some added steel langets. 60 inches in total length seems about right for this one. As always Tod's stuff is really nicely done. The casting on this is really well done!

Arms and Armour Spatha Axe head re-hilted to an ash handle that I put together. The handle is 49 inches long which when set on the the ground allows me to comfortably rest my arms across it (a very important weapon property in my consideration Happy

Very nice to see those nice polearms. At least there are some additions on a regular basis.


@Martin
This is a very nice Warhammer you got. I am still waiting for mine, which is inspired by artwork from the late 14th early 15th century. Hope to have it by end of June.

Very good!

I was thinking in that direction. Mine will be from him too, as are the two staffs in the initial post (Spear and Roncone).

Here are some....
1. Lochaber axe by Unknown maker, purchased from Pat Tougher of Scottish Sword and Shield.
2. The same Lochaber along with a Lochaber axe by a company called "Thistle Arms" of Scotland, also purchased from Pat Tougher.
3. Generic Leaf-blade spear, made in China, bought from a local Martial Arts supply shop. It was cheap, but it's a pretty decent spear. The spear head is even distally tapered!
4. The above spear with three pila, two by Deepeeka (including the newer three-rivet tanged pilum), and one unknown make from Kult of Athena.
