                                        Francisca, Throwing Axe by Paul Chen, Antiqued

The Francisca, so named for its Frankish origins, was used by the Franks both as a throwing weapon and for close-quarters combat.

Its graceful lines are legendary and the upswept point and down turned edge we're both capable of penetrating chain mail.

This Francisca axe, crafted by Paul Chen at the Hanwei factory, features a forged head with a grey antiqued finish and a swelled-end hardwood shaft for secure head retention. The shaft is also backswept, as were the originals, providing greater sticking capability when thrown.

Made by Hanwei.
