Small broken back seax

Recommended Posts

I got a 2x72" belt grinder for christmas!!! (Ok, so it was from myself, to myself, but still...) A Pheer 427 with 2 horsepower and variable speed. So much nicer to use than an angle grinder when grinding blades. Got a flat platen, 10 inch contact wheel and small wheel holder as well.

 

And here is the first fruit of the Pheers loins, a small seax, 15 cm blade (about 6 inch) 11 cm handle (about 4.5 inch) 5 mm 1060 steel. Leather over birch handle.

 

Constructive critisism and/or flaming is welcomed and appreciated. :)

Not a typical blade shape, but I like it. Looks similar to some finds from Haithabu (the type 7)

('typ' is type and 'anzahl' is number of finds)

I love it... very clean, aggressive shape, and the leather covered handle works well with it.

Thank you. I like the ones with a steep "kentish notch" though mine might be a bit exaggerated.

 

I just checked your page and wow, you have a lot of beautiful blades. Inspirational.

Awesome! 2x72s are awesome, eh? haha nice job man.

Now you just need a forge and an anvil. ;)

Oh its wonderful. :) It was pricey, but I havent regretted it for a second. I do have a forge but I use it mostly for heat treating. I will do more forging once I get a proper anvil. The one I have now is really old and not even close to straight. It sags in the middle and the corners are hanging. I've done a bit of forging on it, but its annoying to use, at least for a beginner like me.

 

Love the Pratchett quote by the way :) Big fan.
