SEAX II #6578- folded steel

This is a blemished product. The handle cross section is not exactly octagonal. One of the photos listed illustrates the imperfection. Other than that everything else is good. 

Also known as Scramasax, this Seax II has asingle edge blade is 11-1/2” long with a 7” groove on one side.  Near the handle the thick blade is slightly over ¼” thick and tapers to 1/8” an inch from the tip. This gives the dagger a nice balance. Two types of steel were used to make the blade: 1050 & 9260. Fusing them together at a very high temperature results in a folded steel or pattern welded steel. The blade was etched with acid and the lamination pattern is visible. Polishing or sanding of the blade surface will remove the dark color. The edge is differentially hardened.

 Simple utilitarian wood handle is 5” long with an octagonal cross section. It has a brown stain. The same type of wood similar to oak is used as a scabbard. Basic blade shape has been patterned from museum artifacts.
