The Seax of Beagnoth - Gold and Silver inlaid, limited edition

The blade is complexly decorated and provided with a runic inscription. On one side you'll find engraved the complete runic alphabet (Futhark), on the other side the word Beagnoth, which is believed to have been the name of the bearer or smith of the seax.

Our replica is very close to the early medieval original. The inscription is, like the original, inlaid with gold and silver. The single-edged, blued blade has a narrow yet quite deep fuller. It comes unsharpened. The wooden handle scales are securely riveted to the blade's tang with brass rivets.

Delivery includes a sturdy, authentic sheath made of cowhide with knot-patterned fittings.
