Trio of Broken Back Seaxes

Just completed: 3 broken back seaxes. These Anglo-Saxon knives feature a hand-forged high carbon steel blade (5160) with a decorative grove near the spine. The hilt has a distinctly Scandinavian flare with a nickle-silver ferrule and end cap. The peen and end cap is accented with domed steel pins. The grip is made from a hardwood core and is covered in leather. These seaxes come with a simple leather sheath and they are all sharp.

Stats:

Top seax -- Dark brown, blade length 12.75" (32.34 cm), overall length 17.75 (45.09 cm) SOLD

Center seax -- Red, blade length 12.3125" (31.27 cm), overall length 17.75" (45.09 cm)

Bottom seax -- Mahogany, blade length 12.875" (32.7 cm), overall length 18.063 (45.88 cm) SOLD

Price: $450 (sheath included) plus $25 domestic shipping. International shipping via UPS and will be determined at time of sale. If you are interested, contact me at ericmycue@verizon.net or PM.



Top – Dark Brown, Center – Red, Bottom – Mahogany

They are 0.25" (6 mm) at the base and they taper from there. They all have non-linear distal taper, and because of the forging, they all have slight variations in taper. They are sturdy knives.

The sheaths are finished and the first two are in the process of being shipped.

Only the red one remains, and it can ship immediately.
