Copper and elm seax

2018

The shape of this knife was inspired by Anglo-Saxon finds from around the year 1000, although this knife is not a historical replica per-se.

The handle was carved with an intertwining knotwork pattern also taken from early-medieval sources.

The sheath was wet formed from veg tan leather, and is set up for edge up carry, as is historical for this type of knife. The sheath fittings were fabricated from copper.
