This hand-forged seax is of the design that was common both among the Vikings and the Anglo-Saxons. 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.  Grimfrost in runes is stamped into the blade as a makers mark.
