How do you carry a Dane axe/Two handed axe ? Regular axe would be tucked in your belt
but i cant imagine any way to carry a dane axe around other than using it as a walking stick

Late to the party.... But what the :P .

A lot of the Re-enactors I used to hang out with (Viking mostly), hung the axe over the shoulder with the beard.
It sits there quite happily even at a jog (although a hand to steady it helps).

I'll have to see if I can find a picture
