Overview


Circa 650-750 AD
During the so-called Dark Ages, there were many advances in metallurgy and better swords, like this one, were produced. Based on a 7th Century design, this slashing Viking sword was a favorite. The wide central fuller was the key to reinforcing the blade all along the edges. Hand forged from high carbon steel and tempered, this full tang sword would have been carried by the most skilled warriors. Brown suede wrap over wood grip and intricate bronze parts. Runic copper fill along the fuller was a skilled way to show the beliefs and power taken into battle to full effect and translate to: Cattle - reward for defeating the foe, Tyr - god of battle, Yew - supreme natural toughness.  The other side translates to: Game - wily nature, Elk - wild vitality, Man - the one thing that could embody all attributes. Includes elaborate wood, suede and metal scabbard with top grain leather belt. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts

Seax

The seax, or sax, was universal in Northern Europe. Carried and used by the Saxons, Angles, Vikings and German tribes, its use probably dated before the fall of Rome and continued on into the early Middle Ages. From small knives with 3-4 inch blades to actual swords with blades of 27-28 inches and always single-edged, the profile of the seax varied a great deal. The original version of this large knife served from camp work to cutting work, on shipboard, and for fighting if 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 and holding a razor sharp edge. Leather sheath riveted and laced like the originals, has two thong slots. The remnants of this Seax can be seen in the British Museum. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts®.
