Birka Long Seax, Viking Sax Knife with Carbon Steel Blade and Wood-and-Bone Handle

This Viking Age knife based on finds from Björkö/Birka (grave 944), Sweden, features a sharpened high carbon steel blade. The wood-and-bone handle has an oval cross-section for a solid grip on the knife and the brass butt cap is equipped with a convenient lanyard hole (leather lanyard is included in delivery). The bone section is adorned with intricate period details. As the knife is fully hand-made, these ornaments may slightly vary from piece to piece. Please also keep in mind that bone is a natural product and variations in bone colour and grain are quite common. Each Birka seax has thus its own very unique handle and above pictures are for reference only.
