Seax with scabbards from Arms & Armor

A news update for July ARMS & ARMOR News. includes several Seax with scabbards on the Muster Page








There is a nice selection of sizes, grip materials and scabbard details to choose from and any of the pieces left by the weekend will appear at the Bristol Renaissance Fair at the A&A booth for checking out and hopefully adoption.




If you have not visited us at the fair, but live near by, be sure to make a foray this year to see some sharp and interesting stuff!

Love the antler(bone?)gripped example on the end. Very functional, yet graceful. Fantastic!.......McM

Great to see more Seax on the market, but I must say with honesty that I don't really like these offerings that much. For me the blades are just too straight and angular.

Hi Craig,

The seax (F) is very interesting and I imagine would be dated 950-1000, maybe a tad later at a stretch. A narrow groove would look nice on this as well and "I think" could be seen as contemporary.

How thick is the spine and what is the distal taper like?

It's always nice to see more seaxes. Happy

Hi Jeremy

The blade thickness on F is just under .2" and around .25" at the hilt on the rest. They have a slightly graduated taper to them so they carry a touch more weight through the first portion of the the blade then a slightly curved taper in thickness to the tip. The back to edge taper is relatively even coming down to a quite nice edge.

The heft of these types of knives is often a bit more than most modern designed types of fighting knives. It is definitely a sturdy fighting/working type knife.

Just a reminder to anyone visiting the Bristol Show this weekend outside of Kenosha, stop by and handle these pieces and check out our other items.

Have a great week end.
Craig
