Laverstock inspired seax - WIP

Recommended Posts

I am lucky person! Once upon a time a get approached by a future customer, asking me to do, exactly what i would love to. I have learned a lot with Heptisax and others and I will need it, completing this job.

Sax, inspired by a find from Laverstock, now in Salisbury museum (i know that Jared will make it too, and we talked through :-))

 

As i have learned from the past, I start this wip, with blade ready - welded of WI and very old leafspring, ground, hardened and groove is scraped.

 

So this is where i am just now

Please let me know what you think

These things on paper are almandines for pommel

Yes, i just got them from my friend Wojtek, he is a real support to me!

In this case, i think that the sheat will be more challenging than the knife

Sweet! I'm really looking forward to seeing this one come together Petr! I have been developing a major interest in Viking blades recently.

Cool Petr,

How long is it? 9 or 10 inches " if the paper is 8 inches wide..

this will be fun to watch ... and the scraped groove makes it look "authentic" already....smile.gif

Thanks for your trust :-)

Richard, this paper is some hybrid format, the blade will be 11 inches (about half will be sacrifised).

Alan, from the blade its silver, antler with horn rised spacers,silver, silver with almandine

Im liking that detail on the collar. it pulls the handle and blade together quite well.

Organic work as always Petr!

 

Is it the picture, or does the blade have a soft curve [convex] from bolster to point? It looks that the poit drops slightly lower than hilt.

 

Thx, Ted

 

ps- The hasp plate on chest is a great idea too!!

Hello!

Thanks

Its pretty much the picture, edge is straight until about an inch, where it curves a bit to meet the spine at the point. Hilt leans a bit towards the edge. Its caused mainly by the widening the hilt

Very inspiring work as usual Petr, your sense of style is incredible! I love how you're doing the grip in segments, I've been wanting to try one like that. It's really moving to get to see your work again after being gone for so long!

 

Can't wait to see more good buddy!

 

(edit to add:) I thought the blade curved a tiny bit too as I had a long sax curve forward a bit when it was quenched!
