Indeed, nice work on both sheath and knife. Though I wonder if the blade tip will eventually snap off.
Yeah it might, Anon. I think that is a rendition of the old Scot seax… a rather nasty weapon of very old design…
So what good is a blade that shape for? splitting kindling? making roof shakes? A straight blade like that seems of very limited use unless you are trying to shank someone.
It's for shanking someone. As Mr. Filthie surmised, a seax or sax. Somewhere between a knife and a sword. Where the Saxons got their name. They would shank in a heartbeat.A wonder we don't call them Shanksons.
