Description

This blade is a 3 bar construction. Two layers of twisted steel with an edge of random pattern damascus. Using the same techniques that are used in the making of legendary Saxon and Viking swords. The burl walnut handle has a brass ferrule at the front. Broken back seax blades have a very distinctive and stylised geometry where the blade is thicker at the broken back and tapers towards the tip and back towards the handle.

This is a hefty knife thick spined and with a reassuring weight to it.

The handle and sheath are made by Jorgen in Yorkshire and has brass fittings and tooled leather and a Saxon face on the pommel.
