Seax, also known as hadseax, sax, seaxe, scramaseax, scramsax, means knife or cutting tool in Old English. In modern archaeology, the term seax is used specifically for the typically large knives worn by men in the 5th to 11th century in the region roughly enclosed by Ireland, Scandinavia and Northern Italy. The seax was most common in Germanic Tribes and Viking culture and often featured a very elaborate and decorative sheath.
Our Seax's blade and handle are based loosely on a heavy broadseax from early 7th century Weingarten (Württemberg), Germany.
Steel blade with plain sheath and wood handle. Blade length measures 7 3/8 inches and total length measures 14 inches, width of blade near pommel is 1 1/8 inches.
