    Viking scramasax

    Hello there!
    Well, I'm very new to this forum, but I was told to come in and show my work here, and, of course, I hope to see other's work as well.

    This is my first post. I read the forum rules, so I hope it's ok to post right here. Please, if it's not, just let me know and I will search the apropriate place for it

    Well, let's begin, then:

    This is a viking scramasax I made two weeks ago.
    Made from and old high carbon file. The handle is deer antler. The "guard" is inox steel/bone/inox again.

    The scabbard is made of a 2mm thick leather, engraved.

    Overal lenght: 49,7cm
    Blade lenght: 32,4cm
    Max. blade width: 3,0cm
    Blade thickness at the guard: 0,35cm

    Any comments will be very welcome, even if it's not positive. I'm a beginer right now and I do believe that any work must be criticized to grow up. So, if you think you may make me feel bad, go ahead

    And, of course, I also think that anyone needs some encouragement, so, if you like the work, let me know hehe

    See ya, folks

    Very nice looking work! I like the way the curve of the antler makes a kind of stop to keep the blade from slipping out of the hand.
