The walking axe of Gimli, son of Glóin, from “The Lord of the Rings” and “The Hobbit.”
About this creation
This model is a full-scale replica of Gimli’s walking axe (as differentiated from his dual-bladed battle axe) and weighs about 1.8 lbs. Planning to build Orcrist, I didn’t have enough time before Bricks Cascade 2013 to complete the sword and its scabbard, so I opted to build one of Gimli’s axes as some of you requested. The head on his walking axe was a great exercise in planning Studs Not On Top connections, and it is surprisingly durable.



The center ‘bar’ within the weight-saving cutout of the axehead is composed of 1 x 2 jumper plates and does not actually join the bottom section of the axeblade to the top. The connections between the shaft, the bottom section, and the top section of the blade are all strong enough, though, that this doesn’t matter; the column of jumper plates needs only to support itself.





The shaft is very solid and can support the weapon well when held at any point along its length; I would like to find a way to make it less blocky, though, and give it a more circular cross-section.


The current lineup of my assorted Tolkien weapons. Stay tuned for Orcrist!


Thanks for looking, and let me know what you think!
