First Saex


Recommended Posts

My first all-by-hand knife to completion:
An interpretation of a Viking era Broken-back small seax.
Overall length 7 7/8ths inches
Blade length of 3.5 inches
Blade thickness: 1/8th inch spine tapered to the point

Blade: hand forged and hand filed/finished from reclaimed lawnmower blade steel (around 2 years ago)
Oil quench hardened at around 1500F
Tempered in the forgefire until golden brown by eye

Handle material: Rosewood xylophone key, exceptional water buffalo horn find from Petsmart, and a 1/4 inch brass pin

And....of course there's the adventurer's backdrop shot...

I have used Elk antler that I found at Petsmart . Sometimes they have some great handle size pieces.
