Sold! Small broken back seax

Recommended Posts

This blade was forged from 7 or 8 (cant remember) twisted rods of 1080 and 15n20 drawn out to elongate the star pattern. The handle I'm not sure what its makeup is. Some closed grained hardwood that carves easily and isn't prone to splitting. It's similar to unfigured maple. I inlayed a twisted strand of silver into the handle as well as bone decorated with knotwork on one side and a spiraling eye on the other. Everything was done by eye for that very organic and less than perfect hand made look. 

 

This design was based around a historical profile and I threw some of my own style on top of that. The blade is about 5 inches long. 

 

I'm asking $200

I agree with Will. I'm sure you could sell this blade for more than twice. There's just too much work involved for 200. You are way underselling my friend!

I thought I should add that the silver wire is tucked into that hole drilled offset of the blade edged and filled with epoxy. It looks like it was just cut in these pics.
