Lovely!  I like all these little Birka-style saxes showing up these days.  It's just over 15 years since the first seax rennaissance (driven by this very forum, btw!), maybe a new one is arriving?

When did the first one end?

I think that the first wave started about 20 years ago and there's always been someone turning them out.  There's a lady at Fay's Forge, coincidentally named Fay, who posts on You Tube.  I don't think that I've seen her show a knife that she's made that wasn't a seax.  She's really good at carving handles too.

As i promised last time, i am attaching a "brother" of the last presented knife. It is more inspired by northern knives and i have used a birch bark for the first time here. And i have to say it certainly was not for the last time, i think it´s very nice material and i love the scent of it.
