Seax Knife Circa 750 401022

Seax Knife Circa 750

The Seax Knife, or sax, was the universally carried knife in Northern Europe. It was carried and used by the Saxons, Angles, Vikings and Germanic tribes. Its use probably dates before the fall of Rome and continues on into the early Middle Ages. It came in many sizes, from small knives with 3-4 inch blades, to actual swords with blades of 27-28 inches. Always single-edged, the profile of the seax varied a great deal. We have produced a knife of a type that can be seen in the British Museum.
This is a beautiful and very efficient knife. The originals were general purpose knives, for camp work to cutting work, on shipboard, and for fighting if it so happened that a sword or axe was not available. The lobed pommel and guard are brass, and the wood grip is studded with brass tacks, for a very secure and comfortable grip. The blade is etched on both sides, flat ground, and capable of taking a razor sharp edge. The leather sheath is riveted and laced like the originals. Two slots are provided for thongs to tie to the waist belt.

Overall: 19"
Blade: 13" long, 1 5/8" wide, 1/8" thick
