Diamond-Back Boarding Axe


This product is unavailable

The boarding axe was a combat tool and weapon from the fighting age of sail. It was used for many purposes, often during fires - for breaking open doors, windows, and creating holes for smoke escape. It was also used during combat, primarily during boarding action between ships - cutting through anti-boarder nets and lines, to smash through the doors and windows of cabins to attack the opposing crew who may be defending that as a stronghold.

This boarding axe features a curved blade, balanced with a four-sided spike of diamond cross-section; the unique head leads to a part-charred and waxed haft with a real brown leather grip. Comes complete with a brown leather sheath.
