"Smar Haukr" - Little Hawk Seax

Recommended Posts

Here's a little thing I restored actually - recently. The blade was made quite a few years ago - but had been collecting dust'n rust. So - I shined it up and made a brand new handle and sheath for it.

The runes on the blade reads "Smar Haukr" - old Norse for Little Hawk.

Steel: Don't remember.
Hardness at edge: 58 HRC (differential hardened)
Handle: Russian Bog Oak (2800 years old) + maple, green vulcanized fiber and 925 silver.

This will be my daily beater in the mountains and forests whenever I travel. :)

 

Sincerely, Alveprins.

I dig the maple frame handle and guard.  It was unexpected and its cool looking.  I also like that high layer count steel as well!

Thanks man! - yeah, this was the 2nd knife I did with a frame at all, and I think this is a technique I will adopt as a sort of permanent thing. I really like working like this. :)
