Birka seax.

In the very last of 2016 I finished up this large Scandinavian seax, inspired by a knife from Birka (Bj581). Handle is curly birch with brass bolsters and draw ring.

Cuir bouilli leather sheath with brass mounts and brass rivets. Step shaped filings on top mount with tinned bronze underlay. Three point suspension like the original. Full flat grind knife blade in O2 from the very talented George Ezell.

I hope you like it!
