  2. Hi all,

    i just begin my next custom seax.

     

    A long broken back seax. The blade is 500 mm long, 34mm high and 7.5 mm thick by the tang / 6 mm at the point. Steel is a C105 forged flat bar.

     

    The customer want punched vikink runes on the blade. So i prepared the blade, without cutting edge. So i can better pounch the runes in.

     

    For handle material he want yew and rendeer antler. Spacermaterial in not definded. Just at moment, he not now, if he want a silmly sheath, or a viking sheath reconstruction.

    This seax is just the simpler execution of this seax. The problem is the money. It was to cool to try to make 1: 1 version.

  6. Hi Joshua,

    yes i know, the germans used the same form. But this is a Swiss " Holstein " Dagger. In Switzerland this form is used just from 14th century.

    And yes without critique or observations we cant learn.

     

     

     

    The handle  and the blade chanched always a bit.
