The Seax is based on its historical namesake, which was universally used in Northern Europe. Also called the sax, it was carried by Saxons, Angles, Vikings, and German tribes, and probably originated even before the fall of Rome. Its use continued on into the early Middle Ages. Historically it was intended for a variety of tasks, from camp work to cutting work, use on a ship, and even for fighting if a sword or axe was not available. This version is made of fully tempered, high carbon steel, and its single-edged blade is etched on both sides, flat ground, and capable of taking and holding an even sharper edge. The lobed pommel and guard are made of brass and frame a wood grip studded with brass tacks for a very secure and comfortable grip. Its included leather sheath is riveted and laced for an authentic look, and has two slots on its side for varied attachment. Functional in its make but also quite striking to behold, this early history seax is suited for both the battlefield and mantel.
