BEST QUALITY LEATHER SHEATH
QUALITY DOES MATTER
If you have a Damascus steel Axe, you have a axe head with unique beauty. With its historical reputation as the metal used for the best swords over hundreds of years and its distinctive wavy design, this steel is a beauty to behold. So with that quality blade–especially one that has intricate etchings–comes special care. Here are our tips on how to care for a Damascus steel axe head, in order for it to maintain its beauty and use.
WHEN TO SHARP YOUR VIKING AXE
- To repair nicks and other mars on a blade’s edge, you need to sharpen it.
- How to tell if a knife needs sharpening? It will slide right off the skin of an onion.
- Skip electric sharpeners, which strip away too much metal.
A sharp axe is a safe axe. Dull axes not only make your work harder they can glance off the wood and cause serious injury.
Tools needed to sharpen an axe are a file, a honing stone, and a strop. A flat, mill bastard file should be used if your axe is extremely dull. After using the file (if needed) finish with a flat or puck style medium and then fine hone. Use a leather strop to complete sharpening your axe. For further details click here.
Care for viking axe
Carbon steel and damascus can rust when not cared for properly. You will need to make sure the blade remains clean and dry in order to prevent rust or discoloration.
After cleaning and drying your axe, you should lubricate it with a wax or vegetable oil to prevent moisture from affecting the blade. We recommend Renaissance Wax (an archival-grade museum wax), because it will keep your knife or axe rust-free and maintain its etched beauty.
If you have a Damascus steel blade or axe, exercise caution when showing off your blade to others to avoid injury.
