I am building up a kit for 7th Century Vendel or Saxon king or at least a noble. I have been looking for examples of seaxes
of that era. I believe they were the broadseax type but as to how broad, long and what form of hilt they had, I am in the dark.
Of course it is called the Dark Ages, so I guess I fit right in.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
