Are you ready to make this rite of passage?
The axe is a symbol of mankinds' indomitable spirit and will to survive. One of our oldest and most versatile tools, we have used the axe to build homes, create fires, defend ourselves and take control of our environment for thousands of years. 

A well made axe will provide useful service to its master or mistress for decades.

At VlakVark Forge you will learn how to forge this noble instrument, and you'll discover a connection to the past as you hand craft your own axe.
