“Olegg the Mercenary” viking decorative seax with scabbard
Stainless steel seax with etching and embossed scabbard
“And THAT is how Olegg killed bear!” Olegg finally finished, slamming his knife down onto the table and laughing. At this point, we’d all heard the story a dozen times, but when a guy is waving his huge seax around in the air reenacting a fight with a bear are you really in a position to tell him that you don’t want to hear about it? In my experience, the man with the largest knife usually gets to tell the longest story.
The seax, meaning “knife” in Old English, was generally a single edged weapon and very popular in the dark ages. The shape corresponds to the forging technology at the time, which would leave the finished product with the bladed end longer than the other edge. This MASSIVE seax sits somewhere between a knife and a sword for size, and would suit the kind of character who feels like they need the biggest dagger in the room. Is it a weapon or a tool? We’ll leave that to you to decide.
This spectacle of a weapon is made from 1.5mm stainless steel, and is hollow inside. As this weapon is purely decorative, the “blade” portion is blunt and is best used as a prop. The guard at the bottom of the seax is made from 5mm brass and is finished with a beautiful wood handle. Along the blade you’ll find knot work etching that continues with the viking motif whilst giving the seax a little bit of fancy flair.
The sheath is custom built specifically for this seax and is a thing of beauty. Embossed with matching knot work, the work on this sheath is gorgeous and the leather is well finished. Hand stitched and closed along the blade side with etched brass, it hangs from your belt via three leather straps suspended by twisted brass rings. A lot of thought has gone into making this the perfect scabbard - even the straps that attach it to your belt are embossed and finished with hand cast brass buckles.
Want to demand attention from your friends and foes? Get the biggest seax you can find and put it in a fancy scabbard. No one will mess with you with this hanging from your belt.
