Recently asked by a member to make a Seax blank for him to fit his own antler handle to. Made form series 2 LandRover leaf spring. It is a serious chopper!

Nicholas. The handle was set in a deer antler and epoxy resin in the end cap ( front end ) is finished off with pine pitch tar . The end cap ( crown of the antler I think it’s called ) is not finished yet I am looking out for a Saxon coin wich I will fit to the bottom of the handle and am currently working on a leather sheath. The knife was never ment to be a fancy seax ( some are real fancy) but more of a traditional work horse type knife that I could use . 

W.katchum .. it will be used for butchering large game boar/deer / mother in law .. joking aside I like to collect knifes/swords/short sword/longbows /axed/  I have a fascination/passion for old weponry from Native American / Saxon /Viking /Roman and I like to make ( or at least have an input ) some of them

The handle is very in keeping with the style of the knife. Thanks for sharing the pics Elchapo.

      Been busy with other things so not made a knife for a while. There is a KITH over on EM and the challenge was to make a Puukko form recycled materials....right up my street.
      Blade ground form a HSS industrial planer blade. Handle is stacked from recycled brass, copper, stainless and filled in with denim Micarta. All cast onto the handle in a oner then ground to shape.
