my last seax (last but not least)
« am: Juli 06, 2009, 19:45:38 Nachmittag »
I made this one for a frenh friend who re-enact a Xth century viking (danish).

I smith it in carbon steel (XC75) and temper it in oil (I can speak more about heat treating but in french cause I do not have the good word in english).

It's a type III in the Wheeler classification.

I do a lot of the wok (about 80% with hammer and anvil, the rest with files and a little bit more with electric tool).

The handle is scandinavian birch.



51cm total
37,5 cm for the blade
4cm wide
4 mm thickness

here're pics :









and the test :

...great work, and if you got too much free time, we need roundabout 100 pieces of this kind of seax  ;)

Kudos to you....

Hallo,

A little bit more than one years ago a friend asked me for a seax, it must be a type III (Wheeler typology), it must be long an dit must be elegant and razor sharp.

I start working…

Here’re pics just after fire work, I try to push the hammer work a lot (my grinding machine is not a performer and hammer work is more histrically accurate than « stock removal »… I finish the work with a little hammer based on Mastermyr (that’s just for fun)…







After that my friend Gildwin (was on Marzfeld, calvados dealer) take it and work it on his backstand to correct some little thing.

I take back the blade and finish the work, here it is :
 









(the last pics was shoot with the flash an dis more accurate with the wood real color)…

And here’re test video :

This first is my personnal ritual after finishing a blade, i use to finnish in the middle of the night, usually 2 o’clock, first « does it shave ? » (if not it must be sharpened more, a knife wich can’t shave is not usefull), and after that I’m usually hungry so let’s go for a little piece of saussage… (french dry saussage)

And here’re my classical cutting test :

http://entertainment.webshots.com/video/3007945780048954661xOczHI

here’re dimension :

total lenght : 590 mm

blade : 460mm

wide : 32mm at base of blade  et 36mm at the « broken back ».

weight : 360 grammes

thickness : about 4mm (a little bit less)

steel is « carbon steel » (XC75)

tempered in oil and selective heat treated

It’s based on the big war saxon seax of the Xth and XIth.

 :D

Thrust power is good, this is on the way that lang seax of this shape are really done for war or hunting.

The last i've smithed

43 cm in total
17cm for the handle, I do it extra long as they perhaps was (on some evidences tang is very long) and it adds chopping power.
3,5 mm thikness
4cm wide

Type 1 on wheeler classification but I think this shape of blade is really out of time.

XC75  steel, oil quenched, a maximum of work with hammer and anvil as always cause I do not like a lot to work with files...

handle in old yew.

I appreciate working for friends...

:)

I hope this winter will not be too much "raining day" so I can smith a lot, my anvil and my forge are outside, so when it rain it's not possible (I'm not in sugar but red-hot steel do not appreciate water when hammering) and smithing when too much sun is not possible too (or I'll soon finish with overeating brain...)...

the place I use to smith :





and the dragon mooth.... :



as my fire pit is a little bit little for big blade I've to make this eating tunnel for a good eat of all the blade especially when I quench it...

:)
