This Viking Seax knife is hand-made from start to finish here in my shop, by me. The pattern is such that it fits the period from about 800 up to about 1100. The blade is made of 1095 steel, and was tempered so the edge is hard- for holding a good edge, while the back of the blade is much softer- so it will be tougher. The handle is salvaged brass sheet, Masur ( also called "Karelian") Birch from Finland, cow horn and sheep horn. The pommel and guard have the outside of the sheep horn left on, for a different look. The handle is held together by both epoxy resin as well as a peened-over tang, under the pommel. The shape of the blade is such that it has a VERY sharp point, and the handle is a tapered oval- so it fits small and large hands equally well. Finally, the sheath is from heavy leather, sewn with linen thread, and shaped to the knife. The brass details are made for this sheath, one at a time, including the brass ring- which had to be forged closed in-place on the sheath!

11"//275mm Overall (excluding the pull-ring)
5 13/16"x1 1/16"//147x27mm blade, just under 3/16"/4mm thick
11 3/4"//290mm in the sheath, including pull ring

I ship using USPS Priority flat-rate boxes, insured and properly declared, however can ship via UPS or FedEx upon request, and will provide a quote before shipping. Shipping outside of the U.S.A. will need to be calculated and quoted.

Any further questions- please feel free to ask!
