Give me a row of orc necks and room to swing, and all weariness will fall from me.

Brilliant axes there! Can't choose which one I like most! One of these days I'll try my hand at one! Thanks for the inspiration...

Holy Cow! Mars indeed! Just goes to show truth is always stranger than fiction. BTW, I like the axe with the wolf/beast, even if it does look somewhat cartoonish.

Very nice work!

You're obviously very talented, shape looks perfect, so I hope it's OK that I wished for more refined cutting edges on some of them, unless you're recreating historical finds.

I'm thinking about the fantasy viking axe, and the "some more from Sweden" DSC7359 ones in particular. This Swedish one, is the steel bit riveted? And is it textured?
