I got my inspiration to make this Anglo-Saxon langseax from the novel Hild by Nicola Griffith. The novel is about the life of St. Hilda of Whitby, a central figure in 7th century Britain. At one point, as a young seer, she was gifted a very long, two handed 'slaughter seax'. So I decided to make what I think this long knife was. Her seax had a black grip so mine isn't a copy of hers. Mine is based on the Hurbuck style of seax and has a bird's eye maple grip and ancient fossil mammoth bone/brass bolster. The blade was forged from pure 19th century wrought iron so it shows a grain pattern which would have been much like an original. The total length is 25" and the blade is 16". The blade tapers from 3/16" at the grip/blade junction and then widens as it approaches the break in shape on the spine.. and then tapers again. This geometry was characteristic of the Anglo-Saxon 'broken back seax. The wonderful sheath was made by Kyle Jameson of Jameson Leatherworks http://www.facebook.com/JamesonLeatherworks/
