Here are two I just finished up, these are about as small as you can make a knife and still call it a seax, I think. One has a masur birch handle and a wrought iron spine on a 1095 blade that is right about 3 inches long. The other has a 1095 blade (that I finished with 2000grit for some reason) about 3 1/4 inches long, and a English walnut handle. I love making these extremely simple things, but my next one will be bigger....

Thanks for looking.

A good friend told me one time about forging "What is there not to like, you get to break all the rules you were told as a kid, don't play with that it is sharp, don't play with fire, and don't beat on that"

See some of my work.
