People have been asking me for it and here it is: A video about (fighting) axes. So I'm talking about the general traits of axes as well as the advantages and disadvantages on a historical battlefield, compared to swords.

The axe, or rather tomahawk, shown in the video is a Woods Chogan T-Hawk made by CRKT. The sword is the Caithness, a Scottish medieval sword made by Albion.
