Woodsman's Sax

Over the years Cold Steel® has become quite enamored with the history and work potential of the sax and decided to make a simple version called the Woodsman's Sax. Like some historical saxes that have survived, the Woodsman's features a stout 28 cm (11 in.) long blade with the characteristic sloping point and an unadorned wooden handle made from exotic imported hardwood.

Did you know that the name of the Saxon race was derived from the knife they carried? Its true the Sax knife was so important in their daily lives that an entire people became known by it.

So what was so special about this knife that it endured from the from the 6th to the 12th century? The answer is, it was easy and cheap to make and incredibly versatile and effective. Usually found without a guard and with a simple wood or bone hilt, it offered a long, wide, thick blade with a straight edge and a sloping point (easy to forge). This made it just about ideal as it chopped, sliced, hacked, whittled and carved, and was no slouch in a fight as the weight forward balance of the blade and sloping point made ferocious chopping and thrusting strokes effortless.

1055 High Carbon Steel

The carbon content and lean alloy of this shallow hardening steel make this a very sturdy material that avoids a lot of the brittleness commonly associated with higher carbon materials. Particularly suited to blades requiring impact resistance, it's often seen in large fixed blades and swords.
