Reproduction of an Anglo-Saxon broken-back seax found in the Thames at Fulham
This knife is a historically accurate broken back Seax, based on the Fulham seax found in the Thames, London. The blade is forged from a high carbon steel core with iron outer cladding, a typical construction method in Anglo-Scandinavian knives. The cutting edge is forged from 1095 steel and the historical wrought iron is reclaimed from the original laminated iron window bars from a Tudor building constructed in 1640. The seax has a full through-tang that has been scrolled over at the butt to secure a brass ring. The handle is made from ancient Irish bog oak and Scottish stag antler.
