The ubiquitous sidearm of the Viking age, the seax, is a simple, single-edged knife. They varied widely in size and intended function; from short, everyday woodworking or eating tools, to long combat weapons. 

The Jarl Seax is of the latter type, and would not be out of place hanging from the belt of a great chieftain. The 10" 'broken back' style blade is hand forged from 1/8" thick O1 Tool steel and features narrow fullers on either side of the blade. On one side, it has been inscribed with the Futhark naming it "Jeetgautr" or "Swede Killer"

The hilt is 6" long and is a composite crafted from solid brass, stabilised Karelian birch, birch bark, and blackwood. The tang is slotted through the handle and peined over the brass pommel.

The included sheath is made of veg tanned leather with a Jelling style knotwork dragon tooled onto the surface, and features handmade brass suspension rings with two belt loops for horizontal wear.
