Hybrid Seax

Recommended Posts

Finishing this up for a friend. She wanted a seax with some Japanese flavour, and this is what I came up with. 7 1/2" blade, 1" wide and 1/4" thick at the break, 13" overall. Sculpted copper blade collar, buffalo horn fuchi and kashira with copper accents. Carved walnut handle in a take down construction secured by a copper pin. The blade needs a light buffing to brighten it, and I need to finish the sheath tomorrow, so I'll try and get some better pics then...

Damn! That one really strikes me.  I really envy the patience you must have in order to take on a handle carving like that.

Simply stunning Jake!

For the longest time I've been thinking about doing similar carving on micarta.....don't think I'm there yet but you nailed it.

I like it! Be kinda cool if it had a saya to match.

Been a while since I've seen your east-west fusion style, and once again you nailed it!  Really nice one.  B)

Did you do a japanese or viking style tang? 

I couldnt tell the handle was carved at first, thats really nice.

There really isn't much difference - they're both wide, flat tangs that taper in two planes, but I suppose it's more Anglo Saxon , in that it's centred on the blade and tapers to a narrower end...
