  1. So all of my fun projects have been on hold while some commissioned work took all my time. Then I was travelling alot and shop time was scarce. Now I have agreed to produce a special knife for a benefit auction (why? please don't ask). So I am trying to make a seax based on the Nijmegen Seax. It seemed somewhat popular around here lately and I happened to have a piece of PW steel that fit the size requirements. This has to be done and shipped by the end of December. The target form. Being that this is a PW blade, it is not a reproduction of the original seax. It's not even historically accuate for period PW design. I'm really focusing on the shape and fittings. Here is the rough forging with some additional grinding needed to complete the patterning. Here is the rough grinding so far. It still needs a litte profiling, but the blade length is right at 33cm. Width at the base is 3,5cm Wednesday will be layout and drawing the finished design.
