Early style Scramasax
Overall Length:  18-5/8  inches
Blade Length: 13-1/4 inches
Hilt Overall Length: 5-3/8 inches
Blade width @ Base: 1-5/8 inches
Blade Thickness: 1/4 inch
Center of Gravity: 2-3/8 inches base of blade
This 'Early' style sax features a differentially-tempered 5160 spring steel blade.  Blade is approx HRc58-60 at the cutting edge and the spine and tang of the blade ar drawn to HRc45-48.  There is a Norse knotwork 'dragon' style figure engraved on either face of the blade.  The handle features a full-profile tang and dyed Maple wood scales.  One of the scales is carved in a 'mammon' style serpent figure.  The scales are secured by two 3/16 inch brass rivets.  The knife is provided at this time with a simple brown leather scabbard but I intend to do a fancier wood or leather scabbard with brass mounts.

Baselards were a very common form of medieval dagger which came in a variety of forms generally characterized by a hilt in the shape of a capitol 'I.'  This dagger has a full-profile tang and a double-edged 5160 spring steel blade with a convex zero-ground edge.  Handle scales are mesquite and are secured by nine 1/8 inch brass rivets.  An simple but attractive dagger with a good feel in the hand.
The dagger is provided with a simple leather scabbard reinforced at the throat.
