The CRKT Freyr is a cool axe, designed by Vietnam veteran Elmer Roush. For the Freyr he became inspired by the traditional viking axes. The large 'beard' on the cutting edge immediately reminds you of that. Now you are not meant to use the Freyr to plunder villages: it is truly much more useful as a bushcraft axe.
The head is made from 1055 carbon steel. Can handle a blow and easy to sharpen. Due to the shape and geometry it is very versatile. Both when chopping down thin to medium-sized tree trunks and splitting them. By holding the handle behind the beard you have a lot of control over the edge. Feathersticks and such will be a piece of cake. You could even use it as a hunting axe when you are out in the field.
