This is a Bloomery seax blade made with iron and steel smelted by myself. The blade is constructed of 3 layers . A core of refined bloomery steel smelted from Swedish Magnatite ore. The outer layered iron is a combination of locally sourced Siderite iron and phosphoric iron all smelted by myself. These materials are as close as we can get in the modern world to the materials used in traditional saxon blades. I have etched the blade to bring out the contrast between the materials.
The blade is 8 inches long and 1 1/2 inches wide. It is 5.2mm thick at the broken back and tapered towards tip and tang, 3.5mm thick at the tang blade junction
The blade weighs 200 g
Price £350 (for blade only) plus postage
