The Seax Of Beagnoth-Gold and Silver Inlaid- Limited Edition
The Seax of Beagnoth with Gold and Silver Inlays - Limited Deluxe Edition
Limited deluxe replica of a 9th century Anglo-Saxon seax. The original was found in the river Thames in 1857 and is now on display in the British Museum. The seax is also known as the “Thames Scramasax.”
The blade is complexly decorated and bears a runic inscription. On one side is engraved the complete runic alphabet (Futhark), and on the other side is the word Beagnoth, which is believed to have been the name of the bearer or smith of the seax.
Our replica is very close to the Early Medieval original. The inscription, like the original is inlaid with gold and silver. The single-edged, blued blade has a narrow but quite deep fuller. The blade is unsharpened. The wooden handle scales are securely riveted to the blade's tang with brass rivets.
Delivery includes an authentic sheath made of cowhide with knot-patterned fittings.
