An axe was the most common weapon of choice in the Viking Age and all free men and some women carried an axe at all times to protect their homes, farms, and communities. Axes were typically made of iron and quite plain but some were decorated with copper, silver, and/or gold.

The most famous Viking ax is "Hel", named after the Norse goddess of death (Loki's daughter). This axe belonged to King Magnus of Norway and Denmark who inherited the weapon from his father, Olav Haraldsson of Norway and is also the axe is featured in Norway's coat of arms.

The following is from the Poetic Edda in the book of Fáfnismál where Fafnir declares his strength and power from using the Helm of Awe.

The Helm of Awe
I wore before the sons of men
In defense of my treasure;
Amongst all, I alone was strong,
I thought to myself,
For I found no power a match for my own.
