    There was a Budo Dojo magazine from 1995ish that had an article on Viking Axe fighting. I remember it being fairly interesting. If I can find it I'll let everyone know which issue it was.

    I assume all Viking arts are recreated, and that no tradition or even books/manuals survived?

    I remembered the name of the art. Here's the Wiki entry: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stav The history's a bit suspect, but the techniques I've seen seem fairly solid.

    Yeah, the backstory sounds made-up, but it'd be interesting to see it anyway!

    Did anybody mention the, in my opinion, greatest axe wielders of all time the Normans? Technically the same as vikings true but they used what essentially looks like a modern two handed firewood axe to great effect in their days of glory. I'm foggy on details but I watched a history channel episode over it so I doubt its untrue.

    Speaking of Tomahawks,...

    Manhunt for two armed robbers

    You don't see a lot of tomahawk-related crime being reported!
