    small sax

    Made this one for the Seax KITH, it is my first attempt at a one piece wood handle without a guard plate, and proved to be a challenge...

    1085 steel, curly maple handle, and a not quite historically correct brass pin... Overall length 10 3/8 inches, blade is 5 1/2 inches long and just shy of 1/4 inch thick, with a slight convex shape (no secondary bevel). I was tempted to fancy it up with some carving and wire wrap, but the stark honesty of the plain wood won out, maybe next time....

    I should note that the pictures do not do the wood justice, it looks much better in hand...


    Thanks for looking.

    Really nice work. How did you get the lines? is that a dremel router or something?

    Thanks!
    I used a scraping tool, made from an old file, before the blade was hardened. It didn't take very long to cut the grooves, maybe 30 minutes for both sides of the blade... I got the idea of the scraper from Vince Evans several years back, and was happy with how well it worked. Other than an electric drill, I did not use any power tools on this one...

    Perhaps it should be called a soprano seax
