  • Merovingian Seax

    The seax (also called sax, seaxe, and hadseax) was the weapon of choice of Germanic tribes between the early Middle Ages and the Viking era. There are many variations with many different blade lengths: the Merovingian Seax was used as a tool as well as a weapon. Our lightweight broad seax has a distinctive blade form and its cutting edge is on the long side of the single-edged blade. A decorative lozenge pattern and stripes are etched into the blade on both sides. Brass studs in the wooden grip add to the decorative effect and also give you a better grip on this seax. The leather scabbard is riveted at the top and bottom and laces on one side.

  • Spartan Lakonia Short Sword

    5 Review(s)

    The Spartans developed a short sword that is extraordinarily effective in close combat. The leaf-shaped, double-edged blade has an acute point and is well balanced due to the combination of the short, downward curving crossguard and bronze grip. Our Spartan short sword dates from around 500 BC and includes a leather-covered scabbard made of wood. The metal band has rings so you can attach the sword and scabbard to a belt. This Spartan sword is based on the one illustrated in "The Spartan Army," a book by Nicholas Sekunda with illustrations by Richard Hook.

    Total length: 50 cm
    Blade length: 36 cm
    Grip length: 10 cm
    Guard Width: 8.5cm
