This hefty chopper was carefully hand forged from lively one solid piece of 5160 high carbon spring steel. The authentic "Brute de forge" surface texture gives this piece lots of unique character. After forging, the entire piece was normalized several times, Then the blade received a fiery edge quench, followed by triple temper cycles, producing a very tough and resilient cutting tool. The integral hilt is tightly wrapped with natural brown elk hyde, that feels very comfortable in the hand, and absorbs moisture while working.
blade length 10 inches
edge hardness 58-59rc

It took a little longer than expected,but that is ok. Makes sense a smith would want to do batch item, so message to future buyers, if yours is taking a little longer than expected that is ok. It is worth the wait, seller/smith will respond, and you will get a quality product when enough items have been purchased to make a batch.

This knife is absolutely fantastic, I did some chopping immediately when I opened the package, it chops extremely well, feathersticks very well for a blade of its size, I will NOT be buying from other knife producers any longer

Wonderful example of the blacksmiths art. Nice weight, nice balance and delightful to hold. Beautiful to look at. Absolutely top quality. Makes me fell like a Viking. So impressed that I have ordered another one for my brother in law. Great work OTS !

What a beautiful, sturdy seax made by someone who obviously enjoys what they do. It arrived well-packaged and very sharp! And it’s tremendously useful, too.
