  1. Marlene's is 52100 with walnut and copper, plus she adapted hers to have a thumb rest. Lee's blade is thick 1095 with antler. Lee proudly showing off his seax - that smile says it all He and his wife just wrapped up their first knives today, and boy are they sharp! I am finding couples classes to be very fun, and will definitely offer more variations soon.
  2. This is my second attempt at a macheax. Like the previous one, it's going to be used (hopefully heavily) by the client. 80CrV2 forged to shape with G10, cocobolo, and copper pins. 19.25" OAL, 5.5" handle, 3/16" thick blade. Surprisingly light in the hand, but I think I'll try and fuller the next one. I've been playing with 45 degree bevels on the handle scales, I rather like the result on a "meatier" blade. I should have moved the guard/flair down a bit, shortening the handle a tad.

    Seax and Sheath

    This sheath is handmade from red oak. split in half, carved out, glued, and wrapped. it holds the knife without anything to assist other than friction.

    Seax for Doc

    The knife was made completely by hand. I made it look rough on purpose so that it would look more...period. you've got to keep that viking roughness to it!
  5. This is my first seax, after researching a little bit of these knives i wanted to make one so here it is. Its made from reclaimed RR track which i according to machinist handbook is around 1060. Its the same stuff my previous knives have been made out and they have performed really well. Handle is made from Juniper/Cedar, alum band, and some white ash to finish it off. Making a matching scabbard soon. The blade was polished to 1000 grit. My first attempt at polishing anything to this level it was a rewarding experience. I havent fully sharpened the blade yet, I am waiting for a whetstone i ordered. I will definitely be making more of these. Here is some really large photos(will edit smaller later).. Enjoy -Tim M.
