Broken Back Seax - Carved Handle
In the style of a broken back Seax. The 133mm x 25mm x 3.5mm hardened and tempered carbon steel blade is decorated with a subtle differential etch and Saxon Runes. The handle has a copper bolster and end cap, which is adorned with brass pins as decoration. The Hardwood grip is carved and has been flame treated, which caramelizes the sugars in the cells on the surface of the wood giving it a resilient layer. When sealed with danish oil it produces a velvety feel that aids grip. The leather horizontal dangler has simple copper knotwork adornment.
