Seax is the Old English term for knife, but the usage of the word also includes short swords and daggers. The Saxons, whose namesake came from the seax itself, were often known to carry them, both men and women alike. They were usually used as all-purpose tools, varying in size, as to fit the function necessary of the wielder.
This seax is big, very sharp and fully functional. Made from high carbon 1080 steel, it has been forged based on designs found historically, the broken back on the seax and the rune work on the blade really are a stunning contrast. These are sharpened and come complete with a leather sheath with belt loops.
