Viking seax is a Viking dagger | knife with forged knife-blade of carbon steel. This dagger | knife was worn in horizontal position. There are metal decorations at the grip. The Seax Jarlath comes with a strong leather scabbard.
This seax knife has a sharp blade and is therefore not suitable for (show) combats.
In the case of hand-forged blade our blacksmith takes the already rolled spring steel and forges it with hand on the anvil or under the monkey (drop hammer). By forging becomes the steel more compacted (denser). Industrially rolled spring steel blades are made by cutting steel plate into strips under drop shears. Then they are ground or milled/grooved and without further forging directly put into the annealing furnace and hardened in oil bath. The qualities of both kinds of blades do not differ from each other much since the industrial rolling is already very good. On forged blades usually have forge traces, which give them an authentic and unique look.
