PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Bjorn's Long Seax

Bjorn's Long Seax has been beautifully crafted using the highest-quality materials. The blade was forged using carbon steel to achieve the broken back seax shape associated with the Vikings. The back of the blade features grooves known as "jimping," which provide extra grip when holding the long seax with one hand on the back.

The handle has been hand-crafted from walnut wood with brass caps. The whole seax has been finished with our signature beeswax and linseed oil blend, which helps protect, aids in grip and brings out the wood's natural grain. The handmade scabbard has been hand-sewn and finished masterfully with brass accents and double bolsters.

These are an attempt to recreate what likely would have been used in the Viking Age. The broken back shape, with its sharp transition from back to blade, seems to have been the most popular long-seax shape in Scandinavia throughout the Viking Age

  • Sharpened edge

WHAT IS A SEAX?

The word Seax appears to be an Old English / Anglo Saxon word for knife. The term has come to cover a wide variation of different knives. The most common characteristics are: 

  • - A large single edged blade.
  • - A tang in the centre line of blade. Often inserted into an organic material handle.
  • - The scabbard (and blade) worn horizontally on the belt.
  • - The blade tends to face upwards when in the scabbard.

A long-seax (or Langseax) is typically a longer version of the seax, usually over 50 cm in length.

A Broken Back seax is characterised by the sharp transition from back to blade to top, with the tip being just off the centre point. 

SEAX CARE

Seaxes are supplied with a small tin of our signature linseed oil and beeswax blend, as well as being treated before being shipped.

High Carbon steel is not 100% water resistant, and requires the regular application of oil (or our wax blend) to keep the seax looking its best.
