This medieval Maldon Seax knife is from Windlass Steelcrafts Battlecry collection. Fitted to a sword-style hilt, the Maldon sax is a size that serves roles as working knife as well as combat dagger. This is a solid and well-balanced piece. The blade shape features a thick back edge that uniquely curves down toward a straight point providing the Sax with slashing potential as well as chopping force. Rely on it alone or match it to the Maldon sword as a fighting set. Designed specifically to be used and made from 1065 high carbon steel with a darkened, battle-hardened finish, extra wide tang and tempering to a low 50's RC. This pre-sharpened blade has gone through rigorous testing. The hands-on nature of the manufacturing by master smiths makes this line unique. Includes a matching scabbard with belt stop, custom packaging and certificate of authenticity signed by each smith that touched your blade through every step of the forging process.

The variety of different historical knives and daggers is immense. Yet many can be traced back in some part to only a handful of proven designs. One of the most practical and functional is one that’s not widely known, the Viking Sax. As both a serviceable tool and deadly weapon this is the little brother to its better known larger sibling, the Viking sword. Whether hidden behind a shield, worn on the belt, or left upright free-standing in a wooden block or sticking in the railing and posts of a longship, it was always kept handy. 

The Battlecry line of historical swords, daggers and axes have been designed in conjunction with John Clements, whose knowledge of historical fencing and Medieval and Renaissance fighting methods is unsurpassed. Hand forged by Windlass Steelcrafts, the 1065 high carbon steel is tempered in computer controlled ovens to an RC in the low 50's. This ensures strength, resiliency and edge retention. Swords have extra wide full tangs and all weapons are sharpened.

Each model has been put through rigorous physical testing to exceed industry standards. These battle tested weapons have a stone washed, blackened finish. Each is individually inspected at every step of the manufacturing process, and only after passing inspection they receive the armourers' stamp on the blade. A certificate is included with each, signed by the craftsman that worked on your blade. Also included is a matching sheath and, when applicable, frog.
