This is the page for Astrid's new axe. You may be looking for her old axe.

Astrid's Axe is an axe that acts as Astrid's main weapon as an adult.


Dragons: Race to the Edge

Season 6

Following the end of the Dragon Hunter War and the final battle at Berserker Island in "King of Dragons, Part 2",  Astrid switched out her old axe with her new one.

How to Train Your Dragon 2

Astrid's new axe makes its first appearance in How to Train Your Dragon 2 when Astrid attempts to threaten Eret and his men after she and Hiccup land on the Dragon Trapper's ship. Prior to this scene, her axe appears to be strapped to Stormfly's saddle, and Astrid has to resort to using a stick as an alternative weapon.

After Hiccup throws a net over Astrid, he ends up taking her axe away from her and hands it over to Eret. Astrid has her axe with her up until she and the other Dragon Riders get captured by Drago Bludvist and his men.

Physical Appearance

It is implied that Hiccup crafted Astrid's new axe and made her a saddle which is accommodated to hold an axe in place during flight.

Unlike her old axe, which Astrid inherited from her mother,[1] this double-edged axe has a longer shaft covered in fur and two metallic dragon heads on each side of the knob. One of the heads appears to resemble a Deadly Nadder while the other looks like a Night Fury.

The initial designs also included a leather strap tied to the knob.


Fighting: When in possession, Astrid usually uses the axe, especially in battle. Astrid is shown to have been handling axes all her life, so this weapon is dangerous, especially in her hands.
