Ulfrtǫnn Seax

$155.00

The Ulfrtǫnn Seax (or the Wolf-Tooth Seax) is a completely unique knife inspired from viking age historical finds.
The blade has been heat treated and hand polished to produce what the Japanese call a hamon. The hamon is produced in the hardening stage, where only the edge of the blade is heated (leaving the spine cool) and quenching the blade in oil. This gives the blade great edge holding capabilities, while the softer spine makes the blade more resilient to stress and protects it from cracking. After the heat treatment process is complete the blade is polished to a near finish. It then soaks in vinegar- which etches the steel, and accents the differences between the hardened steel on the edge and softer steel on the spine.  Finally the blade is hand polished with a pad of leather to clean the surface of the steel, further accenting the hamon.
