Anglo saxon seax sheath 2 by VendelRus Anglo saxon seax sheath 2 by VendelRus
This is another pic of my new take on an Anglo saxon seax sheath. I had to make a new instead of the old leather sheath that I had grown to hate immensely.

If truth be told a historically correct anglo saxon sheath would probably have a wooden core covered in calf skin, but I wanted to try on wood carving so what the fuck...

The sheath is made from elm (I think) and the fittings are handmade from brass. For this sheath I used a simple woodcarving knife and lots of grinding paper.

The sheath is oiled in lineseed oil and tar and then seal with a beeswax turpentine mix.

The seax (which is huge)) is made by Paul Binns.

Oh yes, it does. But i imagine you are right with fabric, unless its print, instead of embroidery

Oh, that's really flattering =). Long time a go I decided to not bring to much profit into my hobby. Hence I never make stuff to sell. I do however trade stuff with other enthusiasts =)
