Large and small broken back seax

Finished up this matching set of knives for a customer!

My client wanted a matching set of a large and a smaller broken back seax with a hybrid of Scandinavian and Anglo-Saxons style sheath fittings. This is what I came up with.

Both knives have elm and elk horn handles with brass bolsters and draw rings. My customer provided the blades. The large seax is 480 mm long, blade 320 mm. Smaller seax is 245 mm long, blade 120 mm.

Cuir bouilli leather sheaths with horizontal brass mounts. Brass rivets. Simple incised cross hatch pattern.
