Description: I was tremendously pleased to meet bladesmith Dave Skinner at the 2019 Guild Show of Southern Africa. Dave brings a refined eye and tremendous skill at the forge to his knives.
The Seax is an elegant knife dating back over 1500 years. Most likely, it was originally developed by the Franks. It was an effective weapon as demonstrated by its widespread popularity over the centuries.
The blade on this modern Seax was forged to shape from Skinner's own damascus, combining multiple bars of damascus. He combined 1070 and 15n20 carbon steels. The central bar incorporates antique wrought iron. The blade is flat ground, for a high performing edge.
The handle is formed from presentation grade walnut (Juglans nigra). The wood has a tremendous figure. Copper spacers surround coined African blackwood (Dalbergia melanoxylon). A front guard and pommel are formed from damascus combining copper and wrought iron.
This Anglo Saxon Broken Back Seax is accompanied by a period style custom tooled cowhide sheath.
Exquisite work throughout!
