Damascus Seax by Ugrik Damascus Seax by Ugrik
What would a proper viking be without a trustworthy seax? Useful for choping anything from food to small trees it also serves as decent sidearm.

Blade is forged from damasteel and is about 17 cm long. Back of the blade is thick like many seaxes from vikingage - allmost half a centimeter in this case.

Handle is made from woodburl with bronze fittings. Ring on the back of the handle provides something to hold when unsheathing the seax since typical sheaths of the time covered the whole handle aswell.

Hehei,

Its made from damasteel, which is Swedish company that makes powder metalurgic damascus. High nickel content makes the contrast with proper etching.
