Reconstruction of an Anglo-Seax on lon Seax from the 9th cen. The original was found in 1857 in the River Thames in London, and is now exhibited in the British Museum. He is therefore also called Thames sword or Seax of Beagnoth. The blade is elaborately engraved and fitted with a runic inscription, the first part represents the Anglo-Seax on Futhark (= alphabet). The second part of the inscription is Beagnoth, probably the name of the carrier or armourer.
This replica is similar in shape and dimensions largely to the early medieval original. The single-edged blade has besides the inscription a narrow but quite deep fuller. The wooden handles are attached by brass rivets on the hook, and also held by two brass rings.The blade is unsharpened. Supplied with a sturdy authentic style sheath from cowhide.
The scabbards are made exactly to the size of the blade. Please select a scabbard you like. If you´re not sure, whether it is a suitable one, contact us with your order number and we will recommend you a suitable style. If you have already received the sword, we will ask you after receiving your order to submit several measurements of the sword blade. If we still have not dispatched the sword, we will take measurements of the blade ourselves and have the scabbard made for you in correct size.
