Viking war knife

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

i just begin my next custom seax.


A long broken back seax. The blade is 500 mm long, 34mm high and 7.5 mm thick by the tang / 6 mm at the point. Steel is a C105 forged flat bar.


The customer want punched vikink runes on the blade. So i prepared the blade, without cutting edge. So i can better pounch the runes in.


For handle material he want yew and rendeer antler. Spacermaterial in not definded. Just at moment, he not now, if he want a silmly sheath, or a viking sheath reconstruction.





This seax is just the simpler execution of this seax. The problem is the money. It was to cool to try to make 1: 1 version.

Fairly well done! Always liked that one too. Check out the one Tod Cutler, and I believe, Owen Bush made. (Correct me if I’m mistaken).  Tod Cutler has a short YouTube video covering their reproduction.

i see the seax from Tod Cutler.Perfectl inlays. Very nice Beagnoth Seax. But my customer not have the money for a expensive reconstruction. So i make him a simply variation.

Hi Ruggero. Coming along nicely. What are you using to punch in the runes?

You should be happy. That finished beautifully.
