Latvian seax

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

This is a close copy of a small Latvian seax that was meant to hang from a Viking woman's apron brooch.

 

The knife is O1 tool steel. Handle is bone and Scandinavian Birch. Bronze bolster. Overall length is about 6 inches.

 

The Sheath was made from veg-tan leather and 22 gauge sheet brass. Rivets were made from 10 gauge brass wire.

 

The suspension chain was made from 12 gauge brass wire.

 

Patina is Black Magic.

That looks great and really neat work on that chain and sheath fittings too.

That is a great looking package. I like the colour and texture of the leather a lot.

Well done!  Most people make those too big.  This is a great recreation. B)

That is a very pretty package. I'd love to see some close-up pics of the knife, if you have them.

What's to say that already hasn't been said.  Outstanding work.

I did a little file work on the bronze bolster, but otherwise it's pretty simple.
