In March 2016, the Langeid Broadaxe was recreated using the forging techniques that were on hand at the time of the Vikings. The replica was produced from scratch, from bog iron blooms. The work involved refining the raw iron, producing hardenable steel for the cutting edge, and forging the actual axe head. Finally, the axe was hafted and tested on a leg of pork. The blacksmiths were Vegard Vike and Anders Helseth Nilsson.
