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 working knife as well as
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 Sax with slashing
potential as well as chopping force. Rely on it alone or match it to the
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 50's 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, custom packaging and certificate of authenticity signed by each smith that touched your blade through every step of the forging process.
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 Sax. 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.
