briar seax

Just a simple seax, blade of W2 is 8 3/16" long, forged for an Alabama Forge Council demo (first blade I've forged in coal in over 10 years)... handle of briar wood, overall length is 13 1/4". The pictures do not do the briar justice, it is a lovely wood, dense but light, and has amazing grain.

The sheath is loosely based on an original, and has bronze fittings, copper rivets, and brass rings... The fittings are loosely based on some that have survived, plus a healthy dose of guesswork and bad workmanship...

Thanks for looking!

A good friend told me one time about forging "What is there not to like, you get to break all the rules you were told as a kid, don't play with that it is sharp, don't play with fire, and don't beat on that"
Wade Holloway

See some of my work.
