    It looks like a fantasy piece to me. Those little spikes are in a wooden ball, and how is that ball attached to the handle? Any serious use would break them off, or the whole ball, I suspect. It does look dangerous, but more likely to the one using it.

    Battle ready? OK, I guess if you ever find a dragon it's ready for that. That axe is all show no go. And the spiked ball on the grip is just goofy.

    Goofy, and stupid. The angle of some of those spikes would drive them into your hand if you swung it too hard.

    Wall hanger is about all that is good for. Plus if you read the fine print it states that this particular maker does not sharpen the blades.

    First off it's really lazy reviewing to write off a weapon because of one easily fixable feature I bought this axe with the intention of removing that pommel and it held up great at first after the spikes were gone however the manufacturer was very stupid with their wood handle choice it appeared mine was made of maple and snapped after a few chopped up logs an easy fix however their are two pins that have been sanded so you can see easily simply drill or hammer them out get yourself a proper hickory handle and this axe will be worthy of dragon hunting the head and rear spike aren't overly large it splits well and I've only noticed some very small (like you have to be looking hard to see them) knicks after hours and hours of chopping different woods for testing so basically if you want something ready out of the box this won't be for you if you want something you plan to customize this is definitely an axe worth buying and it's my personal favorite out of the 30+ swords axes maces and knives I own

    Could you post us a picture of what one looks like after use?

    And, of course, welcome to BladeForums.

    Maybe dragons are hard to spook?

    The swell looks very comfortable.

    Tell us how you like it when you get to 8th grade.

    It's been years and years since I've seen a dragon around here.
