What a great find! It is amazing to me how the wood managed to survive so well.

It is nice to see that modern seax makers were on the right track with making fancy carved handles.

 

Well, not really. Unless you mean Swedish style seaxes. But there we already knew that fancy carved handles were used. For other regions, the archeological evidence still points towards undecorated hilts.

Ah good to know, I really like the long handles on continental saxes, so i'm glad those are still historically right.

The main thing that struck me about this find is that the handle looks so much like it came straight from the workshop of guys like petr florianek for instance.

“So I'm lightin' out for the territory, ahead of the scared and the weak and the mean spirited, because Aunt Sally is fixin’ to adopt me and civilize me, and I can't stand it. I've been there before.”

The only bad experience is the one from which you learn nothing.
