The Seax is an historical blade that was widely used throughout Northern Europe from the late Roman to the early medieval period.  It was the EDC, and blade of choice of its time, and archeological examples vary in size from a few inches to sword length.

In this 4-day workshop, we’ll be making a classic Anglo-Saxon broken back design comprised of 4 pieces: the blade with a through tang, a brass bolster, hardwood handle and brass butt cap.

Adam’s Forge instructors Will Larranaga and Dossain Valencia will guide you through design considerations, forging dynamics, heat treating, cutting, and filing the bolster and butt cap, shaping the handle, blade grinding and final assembly.  The emphasis will be on forged to finish smithing and participants can expect to finish a 6-8 inch Seax.

Prerequisites: Discovery Letter Opener plus Introduction to Bladesmithing or two or more blade classes. 

This workshop takes place over 4 consecutive days and students must attend all sessions.
