These Wushu double axes aren’t a particularly common site these days even in demonstrations and competition but it probably isn’t considered one of the rare weapons. Originally probably very heavy and nowadays made much lighter for Chinese Wushu practice.
The double short axes are made from plated steel, which are designed to give the feel of a short axe. They are usually seen in two forms, one a cut piece of Sheet metal and these ones that is a crafted axe head, which tapers to the back. The shaft is wooden and has a metal end cap which helps keep the wood from splintering but would also be used for striking with.
Each axe is about 41 inches long or 104cm long. They are always sold in pairs.
“These are for Wushu so don’t expect some solid lump of a weapon. They’ re pretty light, which is perfect for Wushu but don’t expect to be hitting anything with them.”

We have a few different options for posting your items at Enso Martial Arts Shop. Prices vary depending on the overall order, weight, size etc. The checkout page will automatically workout the possible options for you.
We can send your item(s) in the following ways:
Royal Mail 2nd Class signed - Pretty slow service but will get there eventually. We will try and post it the same day the order comes to us, but not always possible for us. More than likely we will post the next day or day after that. Only possible for small lightweight items, as heavy items are more expensive than UPS.
UPS Standard - Order before 12pm and we can pack and post the same day to be with you the next day. If you order after 12pm we can still pack it and have it ready but it is less likely to be collected the same day (still possible though, depends when the UPS man comes) and will arrive the day after that.
UPS Worldwide - For anywhere outside the UK, we can post the same day but delivery times are dependent on the destination. Approximate delivery times are as follows:
