Tool Set for Forging a Viking Broad Axe
My axe forging tools are all specially designed for the process I have developed to forge Viking Style axes as shown in my detailed, 62 minute DVD tutorial "Forging a Viking-Age Broad Axe" These tools are forged, ground and heat treated so that they are ready for use. Each tool is made from the appropriate, high-grade tool steel best suited to its task.
Chisels and the cross fuller are forged from S7 Steel for maximum edge-holding and toughness in hot work. The mandrel is forged and ground from 4140 Steel for toughness when forging the eye of the axe.
