The wolf seax

Recommended Posts

I've been quiet lately, I haven't had as much time to bladesmith as I'd like between job and weather.  I'm trying very hard to get caught up on commissions.

Here we have a pair of wolfstooth seaxes with ash handles.  Both have wrought iron spines and w1 edges.  The larger one is just over 2 ft long, silver wire wrap, and the handle stained with aqua fortis.  The fittings on the sheath are nickle silver..  we'd wanted to use silver but it just wasn't in budget.

The smaller one is just over 10" long, with an oil finish on the handle and bronze sheath fittings.

Yeah. What they said :D

“So I'm lightin' out for the territory, ahead of the scared and the weak and the mean spirited, because Aunt Sally is fixin’ to adopt me and civilize me, and I can't stand it. I've been there before.”

The only bad experience is the one from which you learn nothing.

That is a long one. You could poke your eye out with it if not careful.....

Are both pieces going to same customer? Never had made one myself but maybe I should. Is the pattern on the blade something you etched into it? Nice looking work!

North Alabama, I was at Redstone Arsenal 67/68. ISN'S Huntsville in N ALABAMA?

Good to see you again Raymond!

The pattern is due to using wrought iron and w1, forging teeth into them, then forgewelding them together.  I'm posting a photo I took showing part of the process.  Both have gone to the same home...:)

Redstone Arsenal is about 20 miles from here.
