    Medieval welded knife with composite handle

    I just received my knife today, it is amazingly beautiful for an extremely fair price. Kris does great work and is extremely responsive and helpful. I couldn't be happier. It has been rainy today so I can't easily take a picture that does the seax justice, but it is absolutely gorgeous.

    7th Annual Fire and Brimstone Hammer-In

    Things are looking real promising for me being there this year. I have so much to learn, so I'll be sure to be checking out everything, but chances are you'll catch me at any and all things Viking.

    First Two Seaxes

    Inspirational thread. Hoping to start on my own seax here soon enough. Good work!

    What's your favorite handle wood?

    Please do elaborate, good sir.

    19lb anvil

    That's what I'll do until I can find a "real" anvil, then. Thanks for the help Dave!

    19lb anvil

    Yeah, it does seem to be cast iron. That anvil looks like my next best option, what would be the best way to attach it? I live in the woods in the middle of West Virginia, so I have plenty of stumps to work with. I don't have a lot of indoor space, so I'll probably put together some sort of shop outside with overhead coverage.

    19lb anvil

    I've looked all around locally and I can't afford to get a heavier one shipped to me. Would a 19 pound anvil be sufficient for pounding out seaxes (and possibly small axe-heads)? I have zero experience to speak of, but the poundage sounds terribly light. Thanks!

    Broad Seax WIP

    Beautiful work Jake, I have lurked these forums for quite some time now, and I still seem to have a hard time finding (or affording for that matter) the necessary things to begin working on my own blades. Your work, among others on the forum keep that drive to get going alive. Thank you!
