Scandinoff Vulknut Viking Colours Seax
Hand Made in Europe!
A Modern take on a classic Viking and Anglo Saxon knife, Made from the excellent Swedish Sleipner steel and fitted with a beautiful piece of curly birch and reindeer antler this is both a classic and functional piece.
A little about the histroy of the Seax, It was an Anglo Saxon/Scandiavian design, predominantly used as both a utility blade for things like hunting and genaral use and also as a backup on the battlefield. The original's would have been longer than this modern example, this take is geared towards general outdoor use so the shorter blade makes cutting a little more controllable, better suited for firemaking than fighting!
The blade profile has the the classic "Seax" clip point and a stone washed finish, and some inscribed runes on each side of the blade. Sleipner Steel is a great Steel for an outdoor knife, being a High Carbon Tool Steel that has strength and a fine edge, but it also has a good deal of Chromium to resist corrosion. The knife also comes with a high quality leather sheath made with a thick leather that has excellent stitching.
