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.

    Lovely piece of craftsmanship
    Review by Brian
    Love this sword, great compact size, wonderfully put together and the finish helps cut down on maintenance.
    They only drawback for me is the handle is a little on the short size for the size of my hands so I get some rub from the guard.

    Buy this not the full sword
    Review by Gav the Viking
    First sword in my collection was the full size Maldon. Clumsy to handle for cutting purposes. Fit was better than Cold Steel but left me in 2 minds whether to complete set purchase.

    A few years on and i felt brave to try. Its handle heavy but because its short its easier to weild. Ok not katana sharp and a good puck stone work over required.

    One let down is the scabbard tightness. A huge dose of sword oil and plenty of work required to ease removal effectively
