This small Viking Age utility sax knife (also known as a broken back seax due to its particular blade shape) has a short, hand-forged high carbon steel blade with a thick spine. The eye-catching, polished bone grip is beautifully etched on both sides with a Norse motif in Borre style (ca. 850-950 AD) and terminates towards the blade with a brass collar. The butt cap, also made of brass, features a convenient steel eyelet with a brass ring for threading a lanyard or drawing the knife from its sheath (lanyard not included).

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 reenactment!

  • 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. 2.5cm
  • Blade thickness: approx. 4mm (approx. 3mm towards the point)
  • Weight: approx. 210 g (approx. 320 g with sheath)
  • Leather sheath with bone and brass fittings and antiqued brass 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.
