This knife is based on the continental style seax, sometimes called a narrow seax. This style of seax often had a handle near the length of the blade. It has a thick spine that gently tapers to the tip and is balanced nicely.
The blade is of san mai construction with a piece of 1075 high carbon steel in the middle and some beautiful old wrought iron on the sides, etched and polished back for a very subtle contrast. The handle is moose antler and mahogany with a face carved into the moose antler bolster representing a berserker.
The sheath is a particular favorite of mine and is decorated with brass and freehand leather tooling framed by stamps forged by a good friend. The brass rings are riveted and the sheath is stamped with my mark.
