Price: $425

Add to Cart

The long slender blade is hand-forged to a needle point in tempered spring steel and filed to its final shape. Blade and fittings are patinaed.

The guard is deeply filed copper set between two iron plates. The hand-filling grip is elk leg bone, polished smooth and aged. The pommel is formed from the natural  joint.

The mahogany brown leather sheath is wet-molded and hand-stitched. The sheath is suspended from stitched leather loops, blade up in the traditional manner.

The blade is 10” long, and the overall length of the knife is 16.5”.

* A Seax (also Hadseax, Sax, Seaxe, Scramaseax and Scramsax), was a type of Germanic single-edged knife and were carried for nearly 600 years. Seax seem to have been used primarily as a tool but may also have been a weapon in extreme situations. They occur in a size range from 3” to 30”. The larger ones (langseax) were probably weapons, the smaller ones (hadseax) tools, intermediate sized ones serving a dual purpose. The seax was worn in a horizontal sheath at the front of the belt. The Saxons may have derived their name from seax, the implement for which they were known.
