A reproduction of the Viking seax from the 900-1000s that was found at Princes Street in London. We have elongated the tang, making it run through the wooden handle which results in a stronger, more durable item. Grimfrost in runes is stamped into the blade as a makers mark.

The sax (English: seax) is a long knife characterized by a large, single-edged blade worn horizontally inside a scabbard attached to the belt, with the edge of the blade upwards. It was historically seen with Germanic peoples, and gave among other things the Saxons their name.
