Description

Seax of Beagnoth, also known as the Thames scramasax, the original artifact was found in the River Thames in 1857, and possesses an ornate level of detailing, including the name Beagnoth, as well as the entirety of the Anglo-Saxon runic alphabet - all twenty eight letter-runes. This reproduction is crafted with a blade of steel, with matched engravings down the length of its uniquely shaped blade. A fuller also adorns the blade, to help reduce its weight and match the replica to the original. The replica also features a wooden handle, adorned with brass bands and rivets (as the original handle did not survive to the finding, this is the only liberty taken with the seax and its overall design). Included with the long knife is a hand crafted natural leather sheath, which features attractive stitching as well as dual belt straps, for horizontal hanging, wearing, and carrying.
