    Not much of a reenactor.
    Connected and slashed torso with a viking battle ax and the punk was still able to fight and flee.
    He either needs to learn to sharpen his blades or develop more upper body strength.
    If i connected with my Claymore, he would have been cut in half!

    One swipe and to grappling? That’s a training issue, basic stuff at Viking camp.

    Honestly, I think Id much rather be shot then hacked to pieces or bludgeoned to death with some sort of battle axe, machete, spear, mace, or warhammer. Thats about as brutal as it gets.

    Part of the problem swinging a weapon inside is finding room for a full arc. The axe can run into a light fixture, door, wall, low ceiling, whatever. The “victim” might not have been able to take a full whack, especially if the perp got close.

    I bet the Claymore would be impressive in the right hands.

    The Viking ax is pretty small though. Similar to our tomahawk. Small enough that some guys fought with one in each hand. I imagine when attacking the torso that it is a multiple chops kinda thing. Not going to be anything cool like chopping a head off with a single stroke.

    Also, let's be realistic here. The chopping power from a Viking that fought, trained,felled and hewed trees to build his lodge, did it again to build a boat, and then spent about 50% of his sea time rowing, could probably swing that little ax a lot harder than the chubby kid that was playing video games when the home invasion occurred. Not making fun of the guy at all, he did what he had to do and things went well.

    Look how many whacks it takes to do a Blood Eagle with a Viking ax. The choppy chop starts about 3:40 and that is after starting with a knife.

    He should have watched this first. Axes all over the place. Ax fighting looks exhausting.

    I'm glad that the homeowner was able to defend himself but all parties involved are idiots here. You can avoid a lot of problems in life by being smart and passing better judgment on whom you choose to hang around with. I personally would have nothing to do with anyone who would even think of going out with the perp in this story but that's just me.
