Description

The seax . or sax . was universal in Northern Europe. Carried and used by the Saxons . Angles . Vikings and German tribes . its use probably dates before the fall of Rome and continues on into the early Middle Ages. From small knives with 3-4 inch blades to actual swords with blades of 27-28 inches . always single-edged . the profile of the seax varied a great deal. The original version of this large knife served from camp work to cutting work . on shipboard . and for fighting if a sword or axe was not available. The lobed pommel and guard are brass . and the wood grip is studded with brass tacks . for a very secure and comfortable grip. The blade is etched on both sides . flat ground . and capable of taking and holding a razor sharp edge. Leather sheath riveted and laced like the originals . has two thong slots. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts®. Overall-19". Blade-13"long . 1 5/8"wide . 1/8"thick. Wt.-1 lb. The remnants of this Seax can be seen in the British Museum. Circa 750.

If you choose to add the sharpening service . please be aware that there is a delay in shipping . usually no more than a week. There will be no return on this or any other sharpened items . unless there is a manufacturing defect.
