This medieval Maldon Seax knife of the Battlecry collection is fitted to a sword-style hilt, and due to it's size serves roles as working knife as well as combat dagger. This is a solid and well balanced piece. The blade shape features a thick back edge that uniquely curves down toward a straight point providing the Sax with slashing potential as well as chopping force. Designed specifically to be sturdy and made from 1065 high carbon steel with a darkened, battle-hardened finish, extra wide tang and tempering to a low 50's HRC.
This pre-sharpened blade has gone through rigorous testing. The hands-on nature of the manufacturing by master smiths makes this line unique. Includes a matching scabbard with belt straps and certificate of authenticity signed by each smith that touched your blade through every step of the forging process.
The variety of different historical knives and daggers is immense. Yet many can be traced back in some part to only a handful of proven designs. One of the most practical and functional is one that’s not widely known, the Viking Sax. As both a serviceable tool and deadly weapon this is the little brother to its better known larger sibling, the Viking sword.
