OVERVIEW

The variety of different historical knives and daggers is immense. Yet many can be traced back in some part to only a handful of proven designs. One of the most practical and functional is one that’s not widely known, the Viking Seax. As both a serviceable tool and deadly weapon this is the little brother to its better known larger sibling, the Viking sword. Whether hidden behind a shield, worn on the belt, or left upright free-standing in a wooden block or sticking in the railing and posts of a longship, it was always kept handy.

This medieval Maldon Seax knife is from Windlass Steelcrafts' Battlecry collection. Fitted to a sword-style hilt, the Maldon sax is a size that serves roles as a working knife as well as a combat dagger. This is a solid and well-balanced piece. The blade shape features a thick back edge that uniquely curves down toward a straight point providing the Seax with slashing potential as well as chopping force. Rely on it alone or match it to the Maldon sword as a fighting set.

Designed specifically to be used and made from 1065 high carbon steel with a darkened, battle-hardened finish, extra wide tang, and tempering to a low 50s RC. This pre-sharpened blade has gone through rigorous testing. The hands-on nature of the manufacturing by master smiths makes this line unique. Includes a matching scabbard with belt stop, and certificate of authenticity signed by each smith that touched your blade through every step of the forging process.

I love seax!
A little spendy for such a small blade, but I like the dark antiqued look, and it is solidly built.

Very Nice
Blade is Historically correct. Not so sure about the sheath. Surprised it was made in India.

Well built very functional blade. Can chop small trees and brush. Can split kindling some. Can strip bark well, overall a pretty functional blade in the woods with a true Viking sword feel. Very glad I bought it.
