Seax’s from the Lathe

I’ve been interested in the random quality of the textures found in the pole lathed bowls and cups of the Viking period and I was pleased to find a historical example of a knife with a handle like this.  So I made these.     Each is turned from rosewood and feel wonderful in the hand.  The construction is very simple with the tang of blade being burned into the grip and secured with black pitch. The blades are forged from 1080 and the over all length is 7.5″ for both.

I’m asking $175 for the one with the iron ferrule and $150 for the other.
