Details

The francisca was a throwing axe used during the Early Middle Ages by the Franks, among whom it was a characteristic national weapon from around 500 to 750. It is known to have been used during the reign of Charlemagne (768–814). Although generally associated with the Franks, it was also used by other Germanic peoples of the period, including the Anglo-Saxons (several examples have been found in England).

This Francisca, made by Paul Chen/Hanwei, features a forged head with a fire-gray or antiqued finish and a swelled-end hardwood shaft for secure head retention. The shaft is also backswept, as were originals.
