Scramaseax Swarta

A seax in modern times is often called scramasax or scramaseax,from scrama "wound" (cf. German Schramme "flesh wound", Dutch schram "scar") and seax (cf. German Sahs "dagger"). However, as the word 'scramasaxi' is only used once in early medieval literature (In Gregory of Tours 'History of the Franks'), the general use of the term when referring to all short knives of this type is erroneous. The Saxons may have derived their name from seax (the implement for which they were known). The seax has a lasting symbolic impact in the English counties of Essex and Middlesex, which both feature three seaxesin their ceremonial emblem. Source: Wikipedia

Advisory Service: Questions and Answers

What is the difference between industrially rolled and hand-forged blades?

In the case of hand-forged blades, our blacksmith takes the already rolled spring steel and forges it by hand on the anvil or under the drop hammer. The steel gets more solid (denser) by forging. In the case of industrially rolled spring steel blades, the sheets of steel plate is cut to strips under drop snips, then ground or milled and immediately forged into the annealing furnace and oil-quenched. The properties of both kinds of steels are not very different, since industrial rolling is already very good! On forged blades are usually blacksmith marks, which give them an authentic and unique look.
