Another blast from the past...

Postby TinkerPearce » Tue Jul 30, 2019 5:56 am

I make mostly swords, daggers and saex these days, but a decade or so ago I went through a tactical knife kick. Going through some old photos tonight I came across this. A buddy of mine had come to dinner and I showed him a small saex-knife. He joked, "You should make a tactical saex."

I decided to go him one better, and next time he showed up for dinner I put this in his hand- a tactical folding saex. He bought it on the spot.

I made a couple more over the next couple years, but my interests moved on. Still remember this one fondly though... mostly because of the look on his face when I handed it to him.

I like the blade shape. It reminds me of a Japanese folder I have.

I was not familiar with that name -seax- so off I went to my friend Google.

Viking long knives - seax.

A couple of examples from the internet:
