Latest Updates from Our Project:

New shape, production and delivery estimates.
25 days ago – Sat, Sep 10, 2022 at 12:12:01 AM

Hello all! 


Our project continues to progress and we have some information on the new design and delivery schedule 


In the last month we have been working on the final prototype which will be taken as a sample for production.

After several attempts we are happy with the result, with the new way of assembly the axe is much stronger than before. 


For now we provide pictures of the unifnished axe to show important improvments. We still keep all details as it was on our original axe with production (lines, leather grip etc.)

new shape, new leather sheath

In production we added wood on top for a stronger fixation

Better secure leather sheath

We started production a week ago and at this point we can say that with the new shape and assembly method it will take us a little longer to produce than previously thought. Since our axe is more difficult to produce because of the head fixing we need to stick to certain dimensions that require more careful work. 


We estimate we need about 2 months to finish all production, the first shipment of our axes will be mid october, we can send out about 700-1000 axes and November will send out the rest. 


Because the main people who ordered our axes are from USA and Canada, the first batch will go there, once we send all the orders to USA and Canada, we can switch to Europe


That's all for now, within a month we will make another update regarding delivery to keep you informed and also to show you the first batch of axes that will be shipped.

Finishing collecting surveys, final prototypes coming
about 2 months ago – Wed, Aug 10, 2022 at 04:12:18 PM

Hi all!

We would like to thank everyone who has already filled in the survey, so far more than 2000 people have already filled in the survey and we are still waiting for the remaining 300 people to fill in the survey. 

So please, if you still haven't finished the survey we emailed to you or if you have any problems, let us know so that we can help you. 


While we continue to collect your information, we are working on the final samples that will go into production. In 2 weeks or sooner, we'll show you some new samples with improved axe head assembly and share our next steps.

Survey sent out
3 months ago – Wed, Jul 13, 2022 at 08:22:55 AM

Hi all. 

Kickstarter sent us the funds and now it's time to collect information regarding your orders.


We created a survey with bakerkit so that in a convenient form you can choose your favorite color of your axe and fill in your shipping address, we also created add ons in case any of you wanted to buy an additional axe or leather sheath. 

Remember that each axe includes a leather sheath for free, if you want to buy other colors we have made separate add ons with three colors 

Please follow the link we sent you to give us your order information, the sooner we can collect all your orders the sooner we can start production.

Best,

Viking forge Team

Survey delays
3 months ago – Mon, Jul 04, 2022 at 12:34:42 AM


Our questionnaire is ready and we would like to send it to you but unfortunately Backerkit takes a few days to check our questionnaire before it can be sent out. Unfortunately it is the weekend and holidays and we hope that once we get the green light we can send you the survey so that you can choose the options you like best, purchase additional products and fill out the shipping address. 

Once again we apologize for the inconvenience.


While we're waiting we've already prepared all the styles you can choose from 


We promised that we would let you create your own version of the axe and at the moment we have made all the possible options from the materials that we provided. 

Now instead of 5 options we made 20 that will be available in the survey. 


As soon as we hear back from Bakerkit we will let you know and hopefully we can send you a survey very quickly so we can move forward with production 


Best, 

Viking Forge team
