This is a short slideshow of the sheath-making process I demonstrated at the ‘Oakland Axe ‘n Seax in‘ in Oakland California. The sheath design is based on one found at York in northern England. The knife is an Anglo Saxon broken-back seax constructed from six bars, the decorative spine is two twisted bars framed in pure iron. This type of knife was popular in England in the 11th century CE. The grip on this piece is carved from pin cherry burl. I finished the polish on the blade with pumice and ruby powder. Thanks for looking!
I made my leather working tool set from bits of pattern welded sword blade, ebony, and antler.
