We are delighted to offer this hand made Seax and sheath set as part of our updated range.
Seax – The blade is a high carbon tool steel with a fine cutting edge mounted in an Apple wood handle.
Sheath – Very close copy of the 207 Parliament Street sheath with a small amount of my own interpretation, presented in hand tooled Mahogany cow leather with paired closure rivets and raised and moulded spine sub structure.
Please allow some variation in colour due to differences in monitor resolution.
Suitable for portrayal of a 9th – 10th C ‘Anglo-Scandinavian’ persona.
