very nice, the antler really puts it together.

Fierce! I like it... the antler is beautyful.

Mourir pour des idées, c'est bien beau mais lesquelles?

Again, a great looking knife. Usually I don't like antler but that combination goes together quite well and I really like the way that you used the branching of the antler to give a swell at the butt of the handle.

The materials are usual in this time and wy should I make it different?

It would be interesting what a germanic worrior would say to this seax. Not so far from me was the Limes, the borderline between the Romans and the Germanics. I think my seax would make a good job in a battle. ;)

I'm with Alan: the bolster is the high point of the knife. I like the peening. Nice piece of stag, too.

The piece of antler is german! I only use german antler. Its is difficult to find good pieces sometimes but I like materials from my nativ country.
