In between commissions I was able to make a knife for sale. It’s becoming more and more rare that I’m able to have time to make a non commission piece. This is what I’ve come up with.
It’s sort of a modernized interpretation of a 10th century Scandinavian seax. The blade is 100 year old wrought iron and modern 1084 high carbon steel forge welded together in a laminate construction. The handle is Massur Birch, Birch bark, and copper. The sheath is vegetable tanned leather with copper reinforcements.
This thing is big and beefy, the spine is a little over 1/4″ thick. The overall length is about 11″
