    Before you ask, no i'm not gonna show the first one ^^

    Here it is! fresh from the forge. Left the sacles on to have a more "rugged" finish. This thing is a beast, cleaved rigth trough a couple of 2x4 and it's still razor sharp!

    blade made from 5160, handle is hickory with a little hemp cord wrap. I'll soon have a wooden scabbard to fit ^^

    Very "seaxy" . I love the look of a historic "primitive" looking blade. Don't worry I don't believe any gentlemen should discuss their first time seax. (boo... i'm feeling the puns today... bad news for anybody i email or message i guess)

    Cool. Nice olden styling and traditional handle materials. I've never made one of those before. How far does the tang go into the handle?

    About 4 inches. the whole thing is a bit shy under 12 inches.

    Forge scale is one of the thing I like the most about forged blades. I've mainly done kitchen knives before so it's a bit more complicated to keep them. But his one i've made specificaly to test the limits of the steel, so i've decided to leave it "raw" ^^
