Seax and sheath

Recommended Posts

j.w.s.   

Here's a seax that just I finished at the shop. Jeremy and I have been both working hard to get the new shop up and running and this is the first real blade to come out of from start to finish. Blade is forged out of 1084/15N20. Fittings are all mild steel. Handle is lace wood, copper and ebony. Here's some pics of some of the process and the final blade. I forged a companion piece out of the same steels. I created a small pocket in the larger sheath just for it. Anyway, enjoy.

Perspective seems off in the pictures. Blade is 15" & overall is 22". Construction is all traditional, using a peened nut to make a compression fitting for the assembly.

Fantastic. Great attention to detail. I'm not any kind of knife guy, but that's one sweet blade right there!

Nice work,  just a question.

you used 1084 and 15n20 welded together, did you have to do any twisting or folding during the forge welding? I'm very curious about pattern welding :ph34r::P

No, just a flat weld, San Mai.

Nice. By flat weld you mean just one bar on top of the other ?
