I had my eye on this for a while and finally bought it. I must say it is the finest reproduction SEAX on the market without going to a custom knife maker or bladesmith. A very solid piece encased in a nice sheath. I'm glad I discovered this new line!

I purchased this along with the Maldon Viking Sword and couldn't be more pleased! These are weapons to be reckoned with! I'm seriously considering a Battle Cry Bosworth Longsword because I'm so impressed with this new line. This Seax feels like a dream in the hand. Keep up the great work MRL and Windlass... I'm spreading the news!

The Maldon Seax was exactly what I was looking for ... good reproduction, great size, sharp edge and I love the finish ....

there are VERY minor flaws (i really had to look for them) that can be expected from any hand made knife. The first thing i did was take this knife out and put it through its paces. i cut bamboo and woody brush and took a couple of swings at an oak log. (i know voids the warranty and is risky). The balance and speed of this knife are amazing. It does lose out in the chopping department compared to my old Bowie but the balance is much nicer for fighting. after all the abuse this knife still was sharp enough to cut paper smoothly and had no evidence of damage. overall one of the best knives i've ever gotten in that price range.

Absolutely perfect weapon. It's thick blade and great balance make it a dream to hold and use. As soon as I got it, I took it out and put it through some heavy use. It took it all and still looks amazing and hasn't quit cutting yet. I love the finish (and yes, you can polish it) and everything else about it. Couldn't possibly be happier with a sword/knife of this type. Great product, Windlass!

I was ready to buy a Maldon SEAX and possibly the sword until I saw the finish put on the blade. WHY?? My opinion only, it ruined the series for me.

This knife is absolute perfection, from the balance to the weight. The sheath is beautiful and the blade slides free with no effort making it a dream to draw.
My only regret is we live in a world where I can't carry this everywhere I go.

Some fit and finish issues but this is a really solid product in terms of functionality especially given the price. Great edge retention and durability, even when put under stress.
