Description of the Product

Broken back seaxes like this were very common knives for Vikings, Saxons and other Iron Age Northern European people. Stylistically knives like this were used well into 12th Century. This is a fine size for everyday seax to be carried always with you for general chores and self-defense alike. This seax is large enough to tackle most duties while still having a modest size to be carried at all times. Whether preparing food, cutting rope, as a building all-around-tool or as a fighting knife this type of knife was excellent option to carry with. Very small knives are good for crafting but no good as fighting knives or for heavy cutting and larger knives are too heavy and cumbersome to carry everyday while being good as weapons or tools for heavy cutting. This size is nicely in between these ends and can handle most heavier jobs and still be light enough to have always with you.

Many knives with this broken back seax shape have been found all over Northern Europe and can be seen in many museums. The durable and sturdy blade is hand forged out of 1095 Carbon Steel and the brown leather sheath has a belt loop for easy carrying. Ash grip has pommel cap and bolster made of brass.

Nice everyday tool made to be used. This is a 100% handmade item and each item will have it's unique small differences from other pieces. The overall look, feel and size however is the same for each piece.

Paikkakunnalla ollessani ja keskiajasta kiinnostuneena täällä oli pakko käydä. Aivan upea ja todella monipuolinen kauppa! Ystävällinen ja mukava myyjä neitonen esitteli minulle Etelä -Tirolilaisen mallin mukaan taidokkaasti valmistettua kypärää, josta tein myös kaupat. Liikkeen omistaja ei myöskään säästänyt vaivojaan esitellessään minulle haarniskavarustuksen eri osia. Erittäin asiakaslähtöistä palvelua! On todella hienoa, että tällaisia erikoisliikkeitä maastamme vielä löytyy, tämäkin kuulemma ainoa laatuaan. On varmaa, että vierailen tässä liikkeessä toistekkin! Täältä löytää uskomattoman paljon myös koriste-esineiksi ja lahjoiksi sopivia tavaroita, joten suosittelen tätä kaikille sellaisiakin etsiville.
