The Bark River Bush Seax is a modern interpretation of a classic European-style woodsman’s knife.The Seax was a very popular knife that was a smaller version of Viking-Germanic and later Saxon Scramasax or short sword. Our version of the Seax is closer to the British Isles examples. In popular usage the term came to mean knife more than sword. The blade with it’s slightly curved edge makes short work, enough for small tasks and the slight curve to the point is more than enough cutting curve to start long cuts in hides or meat. The crossover to Bushcraft is obvious, the knife excels at carving, notching and scraping bark. The knife is a true piece of history adapted to modern usage.
This knife is supplied with the Bush Seax sheath.
