Long Seax, Viking Sax Knife, Bone Handle with Norse Ravens Hugin and Munin

This Viking Age sax knife (also known as a broken back seax owing to its particular blade shape) has a long, hand-forged high carbon steel blade with a thick spine. The blade is not fully polished and still shows the oxide scale layer and forging marks on the flats, which lends the knife a rustic, authentic character.

Long Seax, Viking Sax Knife, Bone Handle with Norse Ravens Hugin and Munin

Long Seax, Viking Sax Knife, Bone Handle with Norse Ravens Hugin and Munin

The eye-catching grip is downright gorgeous: It is made of polished bone and artfully adorned with etched designs depicting Odin's two faithful messenger ravens, Hugin and Munin (or Huginn and Muninn), with their names in Norse runes. In Norse mythology, the ravens fly over Asgard and Midgard and return every evening to the Allfather of the Gods (also referred to as Hrafnáss, the "raven god") to tell him everything they have seen and heard. The two birds are a recurring motif in Celtic and Viking art.

The long Viking seax comes with a beautiful sheath made of thick, vegetable tanned leather with hand-tooled period Norse knotwork designs and antiqued brass fittings, including two hanging rings. The twin bird motif found on the handle is repeated on one side of the sheath. Each raven is cast from brass and fastened with rivets.

Although fully functional, the Viking knife has a just slightly sharpened edge which may have to be re-ground to improve sharpness if needed. Please note that this scramasax is primarily designed as a collector's or decoration piece and by no means suited for combat re-enactment!
