Small Viking Sax Knife with Bone-and-Brass Handle in Norse Style

This small Viking Age utility sax knife (also known as a broken back seax owing to its particular blade shape) has a short, hand-forged high carbon steel blade with a thick spine. The beautifully adorned bone grip, which is polished and etched on both sides with a handsome Norse motif, is a real eye-catcher. It terminates towards the blade with a brass collar, and the butt cap, also made of brass, features a convenient eyelet with a generously sized brass ring for threading a lanyard or drawing the knife from its sheath (lanyard not included).

Small Viking Sax Knife with Bone-and-Brass Handle in Norse Style

The short Viking seax comes with a thick, ornate vegetable tanned leather sheath with hand-tooled period Norse knotwork designs. The sheath is nicely rounded off with antiqued brass fittings – rivets, a reinforcing plate and two elegant hanging rings in the shape of coiled serpents.

Although fully functional, the knife has a blunt edge which you may want to sharpen if needed for everyday use. However, please note that this Viking knife is primarily designed as a collector's or decoration piece. The blade's point is not rounded and by no means suited for combat re-enactment!

  • Blade material: EN45 spring steel (high carbon steel, not stainless), unsharpened
  • Handle material: animal bone and cast brass
  • Overall length: approx. 21cm
  • Blade length: approx. 10cm
  • Blade width: approx. 2.4cm
  • Blade thickness: approx. 4mm (approx. 3mm towards the point)
  • Weight: approx. 195 g (approx. 310 g with sheath)
  • Leather-and-brass sheath with carrying rings
  • Specs may slightly vary from piece to piece.

Please keep in mind that bone and leather are natural products and variations in colour and grain are quite normal. Besides, as the knife is fully hand-crafted, the ornaments may slightly vary from piece to piece. Each Viking seax has thus its own very unique handle and sheath and above pictures are for reference only.
