Double Bladed Battle Axe

 

 

The Double Bladed axe, sometimes called Double headed axe has been throughly adopted by the modern world as a fantasy or heroic weapon that big warriors carry. But.... they really weren't used for battle. But they were very much used for two other purposes. First they were for woodcutting and secondly they were used as ceremonial axes. So maybe there weren't a whole lot of big barbarian types wielding them but you can! Lots of companies make them. And well.... nowadays they are strictly ceremonial!
