Two Scandinavian style seaxes!

I have been working on these two seaxes for a long time and I'm very proud they are finally finished! These seaxes are inspired of the long war knives found on Gotland and Birka. Both knives was ordered by the same client and was going to be different but in the same style.

Gotland style war knife with some fantastic laminated blades from George Ezell. Bronze fittings on cuir bouilli vegetable tanned leather with simple incised patterns. Bronze rivets. Step shaped filings with a tinned bronze underlay, vertical bands around the upper part. Sheath is treated with beeswax and beech tar. One three point and one two point suspension.

Handles in some great looking birch and elk horn with bronze draw ring and bolster.

I hope you like them as much as me!
