Seax with Ash Haft
This broken back Seax is based on a Saxon utility knife design that incorporates distal tapers from the centre of the spine both to the point and back to the handle. It has fullers and Saxon Runes to both sides of the high carbon steel blade, which measures 163mm x 24mm x 6mm. It is hafted in Ash, with a brass bolster and end cap. The blade takes and holds a fine edge.
