The Gränsfors Four-Lugged Chopping Axe is a Norwegian axe from the 7th century which was developed into a western Scandinavian type. It is characterised by its four eye-lugs: two above and two below the eye. The axe has a relatively wide, curved edge. Archaeological findings indicate that this type of axe was probably something of an everyday tool. It was, however, also used as a weapon in battle before the actual battle axe was developed.

This replica is based on an original dating back to the 9th century that was found in Skåne in the southern part of Sweden. The original axe is exhibited at the Kultu- ren museum in Lund.
