Hey everybody,


Here is another seax I just finished up. It's a continental style from around the 7th century with a two bar alternating twist of 1018/1095 for the spine, W1 for the edge, and cocobolo for the handle with elk tine for the buttcap and a silver wire wrap ferrule. The blade is 14.5", and a good 1/4" at the base with plenty of distal taper. This is an imposing piece with a good amount of blade presence, but not so much as to be unwieldy; the tang is nearly the full width of the blade.



Asking $700 without a sheath, and will probably be making one within the next couple of days.

Hope you all like! Happy

Very nice Jesse!

I also love the work you did on your Migration Era sword with Behmer type 4 hilt. Man, that is great looking piece. Truly stunning!!! I see from your link page you also know Randal. I know Mark and him talk quite a bit.

And thanks for the compliment. Much appreciated!

Best,

Matt
