I agree and each pic viewed in sequence was better and better: The blade looks rich in contrasting pattern and textures.

What type of wood did you use for the handle ? Just curious as it has a nice warm feel.

You can easily give up your freedom. You have to fight hard to get it back!

Very, very nice. Good proportions and overall feel. Nice to see a narrower, longer seax

This is a beautiful seax Petr,

What date would you give this fine piece?

The proportion, as others have said, is great and crates a very harmonious form.

Petr,

Your new blade is outstanding, but I am always impressed by your carving and leather work.
