In Viking culture, every man who was not a slave would likely have a seax if he could afford one. Both tool and weapon, the seax came in various sizes for different duties; the shorter seax was a utilitarian cutting knife and the longest seax blades were short swords, and intended to be used as such. There were also mid-sized seax that could be used for both purposes.

Easier to create than the longer sword, the seax could be made with a thicker spine for durability and did not require the masterful forging and tempering that a sword needed.

Not just a ‘’stand-in’’ for warriors who could not afford a sword, the seax could give decisive chops, and the narrow, wedge-tip was excellent geometry for stabbing and the shorter length of the weapon allowed the fighter to get in close with the weapon, at no hindrance to himself. Some seax, with a thick spine and sharply tapered tips, could be considered armor-piercing blades. The basic geometry of the seax blade ensured that even crudely made blades were lethal stabbing weapons. Some warriors preferred their seax to the sword and there are examples of seax that have been master-crafted to the same standards as the finest of Scandinavian swords.

This Viking Seax has a blade of high carbon steel. The grip is of stained wood and the top grip ferrule and pommel are of brass, filled with decorative green enamel. Comes with a stitched leather sheath.
