Blades

Postby Andy » Fri Mar 02, 2007 12:32 pm

Hello,

Thought I'd post some pics of some newly finished blades. The first is a viking seax with a carved handle featuring the tree and eagle from the Sigurd Saga.

This blade is a celtic/roman folding knife with a bone handle.

What's the difference between a Saxon seax and a Viking seax? :)

Saxon seaxs are sharp along the straight edge with the "curved" back edge blunt and often quite thick. Norwegian seax type blades have the "curves side as the sharp and the straight edge blunt (and therefore not an edge!).
