Awesome carving on the handle. I will have to try that. :) Is the axe head solid wood as well? Great painting as well.

Many thanks…., the head is a real steel one that the handle had long since rotted away from. I initially polished it up but it didnt seem to go with the look of the shield so I painted it with acrylic paints on a sponge.
