New Seax

Just to show that I actually have been working on something lately.

It's back two bars are opposing twists of 1095 and 15n20, the edge is W2, and the "Wolf's tooth" is some wrought iron that was "rescued" from the bottom of Saginaw Bay in Michigan by a friend. The handle wood is Maple tree root, and the bolster material is diver salvaged old growth oak, from Lake Superior.

This was my first try at a wolf's tooth pattern, it was an experiment that seemed to work out ok, but I still need to work on getting the teeth a bit sharper. I haven't really been doing anything very productive lately, lost my job of 17 years this spring, and things are just starting to get back to "normal" as far as bladesmithing is concerned. I found a new job, that wound up being much better than my old one, so all is well there.

All critique is welcome, wanted to post this, as I haven't really finished anything in quite a while.

Thanks for looking

Zeb

Zeb, I think that came out woderfuly! And it´s good to see you making stuff again, I always enjoyed your things! Maybe I´d cover the twisted rods with a strip of wrought?

Damn, hate to hear you lost your job. Glad you have a better one. You deserve it. Nice work on the seax. The handle is made from really cool wood, too.
