Brunewyrm - Stream Serpent (seax)


Recommended Posts

Hi. Recently I've finished a really exciting work. I've put it also on my blog:

https://lipinskimetalart.blogspot.com/2021/04/brunewyrm-stream-serpent-wijacy-sie.html

 

 

Brunewyrm – the owner named it like that and this means in old English “Serpent Stream”.

The seax successfully landed in the owner's hands in Tennessee :)

I forged the blade out of several elements: a serpent  of 21 layers of soft and hard steel (S235 x 80CrV2) twisted in a classic “rope”. It winds between old fibrous wrought iron, and on the spine there is also a layered strip, but without twisting. To the body I welded the cutting edge of 140 layers damascus: medium-hard and very hard steel (spring  x bearing).

The handle is also composite: bolster made of black bog oak, white spacer made of carved deer antler (by Piachu), reddish Hungarian plum wood, butt made of etched fibrous iron. Silver wire rivet in the center. Sheath made of vegetable-tanned cow leather, dyed and forged in brass.

Dimensions on one of the photos.
