This medieval Maldon Seax knife is from Windlass Steelcrafts BattleCry collection. Fitted to a sword-style hilt, the Maldon seax is a size that 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 Seax with slashing potential as well as chopping force. Rely on it alone or match it to the Maldon sword as a fighting set. Designed specifically to be used and made from 1065 high carbon steel with a darkened, battle-hardened finish, extra wide tang and tempering to a low 50's RC. 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 stop, custom packaging 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 thats 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. Whether hidden behind a shield, worn on the belt, or left upright free-standing in a wooden block or sticking in the railing and posts of a longship, it was always kept handy.

"Excellent knife. Highly recommend. " - Adam (5/5)
"This is an awesome piece of equipment, I am very happy. It is well made using quality materials." - Robert (5/5)
"The seax does look very nice. The leather grip is comfortable and the weight distribution is fairly decent. It is a bit weird that the sharp part is the straight edge of the blade rather than the curved edge (I don't know if this is how it was historically). I will say that the sharpened edge is nothing too special. It's not blunt by any means but I feel like it could be a bit sharper. All in all though, good blade for the price." - Philippe (3/5)
Reliks Response - Yes, the long straight edge is how they are meant to be sharpened.
