The Vi Ax was designed by Leo to resemble a Viking axe, but with the flair and construction that you only get with TOPS. Made from one piece of 5/16” 1075, this is the largest piece of its kind TOPS has ever made. Its large blade will chop through just about anything you put in front of it. The spike on the back is double-edged to provide maximum damage, and the grippy Black Linen Micarta handles will help provide a secure grip when swinging an ax that a Viking would be proud to wield.

Craig Powell from TOPS notes that this knife, “We used 1075 rather than 1095 for this one. The reason is that 1075 has higher impact resistance with a only slight trade off in edge retention. However, it’s still got our famous differential heat treat.”
