Ax replica of a Franziska, the throwing ax of the Germanic Franks, Merovingians and Alamannen based on a historical model.
This high-quality ax replica of a Germanic Franziska throwing ax is masterfully forged by hand and traded with an elegantly curved handle made of solid ash wood.
The Franziska was widely used as a throwing ax by the Germanic tribes and was very popular as an ax among the Alemanni, Franconians, Merovingians and other Germanic tribes. In the Germanic tribes, the Franziska was generally worn on the body behind the belt - so it was always at hand!
It was customary among the Teutons to hurl Franziska into the enemy ranks at the opening of the slaughterhouse, in order to create confusion and unrest there before the actual meeting took place. But it was also used in close combat. The Franziska, like all axes and hatchets, was present in everyday life as a utility ax.
With the elegantly curved wooden handle and the strikingly shaped ax head, this beautiful Franziska is a real gem. The ergonomically shaped handle of the ax gives a good hold and ensures good throwing behavior. The ax is also ideal for all common work and does a good job in the house and yard.
