A beautifully designed seax for modern and historical Vikings! This seax has a broken back blade, just like the historical seaxes that the Germanic tribes used during the Great Migrations. During the early Middle Ages, the seax was an iessential weapon for the Vikings, because of its great maneuverability and light weight. Vikings wore seaxes during battle in hopes of gaining access to Valhalla in their afterlife. The beautiful dragon motif burned into the wooden handle with pyrography symbolizes the courage and lust for war of the Viking warriors. This seax is delivered including a gorgeous leather sheath with dragon motif.

This item is produced in limited quantities only. This means that every piece is unique. Sizes & finish may vary lightly from piece to piece.
Prevent rust and corrosion by oiling your weapons regularly. Remove rust easily with black sandpaper. Remove burrs with a whetstone. Make sure you have removed all burrs before using a battle-ready weapon, as they can cause wounds.
Maintenance & care
Just as with weaponry, you can care for your shoes and leatherware by applying a little Ballistol after cleaning. This prevents the leather from drying out.
Tip: How to adjust the finish of your armour and weaponry
Luxurious (polished)- polish the steel with metal polish or toothpaste. You can even give the item a mirror-like polish. Test on a small surface first!
Handmade (matte)- soak the steel in cola for 40 minutes to 20 hours. Check regularly and treat with black sandpaper.
Antique (patinated) leave the steel to rust for some time in a damp environment, preferably outside. Remove the red layer of rust, to reveal the corroded top layer.
