rocks are for throwing, axes are for chopping.  ;D

LOYALTY is not amongst them.

Amen! I'd much rather use my axes to pull away shields and then carve my opponent into submission...if you throw an axe, there's always the possibility (if you didn't do it right) of someone throwing it back at you!



Not if you know what you're doing.  I've been throwing axes & tomahawks for years... The double bit ones that i throw can blast right through 2x6's.  The Franks and the Danes were known for their axe throwing... the impact and added weight weakens the shield arm and leaves openings in a warrior's defences for the sword rush that follows.

That's "doing it right" LOL

Did you ever find an axe that you liked Warrior Monk?

No sir.  But now you've put me on the hunt again.  I'll see if I can find the axe again and perhaps some other options for you.

Well, I searched and searched and searched...and searched some more.  I've looked through pages of ebay auctions, google images, and various other sites.

I found it for sale on one other site but it is very much marked up in price.  A little over $200 but it's the exact axe you want.  I also believe it is overseas.  And I personally hate ordering overseas.

Here are a few other options for you as well.  Nothing quite as nice as the axe you want but some of the axes look decent (despite the mass manufactured look to them).
http://www.duncanmetalcraft.com/?file=kop4.php Not bearded but a nice axe head.  No price listed.
http://www.wulflund.com/weapons/axes-poleweapons/ Wulflund seems to have a good little selection.  Four pages and I saw a few axes that might interest you (I liked the double headed axe with the cross cut out).

I will keep searching but I figured this would be a nice little chunk of information for you to check out.
