Symbol of strength, bravery
The Viking Axe was used on fields of battle by Viking warriors. The axe was shaped differently than axes in use today. The Vikings preferred their axes to be easy to make and use. The more axes they had the more weapons they had to fight with. The Viking axe had a single cutting edge. The bottom of the blade could be hooked shaped which helped grip in battle. The axe represents strength and bravery.
They would fight while in a trance-like existence and kill all of their enemies around them without thought. They were ruthless and fearless. Berserkers usually wore a bearskin when they fought. Berserkers worshiped the bear. They drew their powers from bears. While fighting Berserkers were safe from iron and fire and they howled, gnashed their teeth, and foamed at the mouth. They symbolized the bloodlust of war while they used their teeth and hands to rip apart their enemies. Berserkers were bodyguards and used as a shock force by kings.
