My foremost favorite blade is the Migration Era seax. Seax simply translates into "knife". These came in all different sizes and I have roughly 30 originals in my personal collection. I try to say true to history and avoid the flashy type weapons you often see listed on commercial or art sites. If you want a sturdy, good-looking seax that will slice and hack, KragAxe is the place to be!
One of my favorite mixes is coarse wrought iron forge-welded over 1080 or 1084 steel. I have quite a bit of very coarse, beautifully figured wrought iron from the 1800's that makes for beautiful blades. I also like to do variations of the chevron/herringbone twist pattern welded seaxes. I'm always open on discussing other patterns.
