Seax – The blade is a high carbon tool steel with a fine cutting edge mounted in an Spalted Beech wood and Reindeer handle
Sheath – Very close copy of the Type A2 Coppergate 15615 sheath with a small amount of my own interpretation, presented in hand tooled brown cow leather with copper alloy closure rivets.
