Stéphane A. Posted January 29, 2012 Share Posted January 29, 2012 Hi there I'm always around and making knives but only showing what I think is the best. I finished this seax today and as I'm pretty happy about it, here we go. The blade was forged last year at Owen's forge in. Some might remember it. W2, clay heat treated. The handle is hand carved boxwood, the eye of the beast is a tiny garnet. Chasing the serpent with Jake Powning last year opened amazing new perspectives I try to put into my recent work. I planned to have the whole piece to look as it could have been in the past, so a lot of hours went in the sheath. Moulded leather, brass, copper. All pieces are hand made from foils and bars. It measures 48cm all together, the seax itself 46cm. Blade 3.5cm wide at ricasso, tapered to the tip. Of course it took me some hours but the blade remained on my workbench for a long time. This will be a keeper, at least for some time. I hope you will like it as much as I do The next will be multi bar damascus 8):pirate: Stéphane My link Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
