The Condor Norse Dragon Seax builds on the highly popular Norse Dragon Knife. It’s a seriously cool knife with a ton of history behind it. If you compare this knife to the Seax of Beagnoth, you’ll see this is a fairly faithful reproduction of this historic knife style. The “broken-back seax” terminology is used to differentiate this style of knife from other seax styles of knives.
The seax was sort of the utility blade of the ancients. It was used for just about everything from cutting to slicing and occasionally stabbing. It features a 7” 1095 carbon steel blade with a natural forged finish. The blade shape is almost a trapezoid with basically a long straight cutting edge and a long straight spine that sharply angles down to a point.
The Burnt American Hickory handle has a Nordic design. It comes with a handcrafted, welted leather sheath with a belt loop attachment that matches the handle. It’s 11.5” overall and weighs about six ounces.
