Seax – Old English word meaning: Knife
The Seax is a special design collaboration between Shadow Tech and Jason Wenz, Co-Ownwer and Instructor at Amalgam Martial Academy in the Chicago suburbs.
While the Seax is a Utilitarian/all purpose knife it was mainly used as a weapon for close quarters combat. The Seax was the most common sidearm of Saxons, Franks and Vikings, later examples have been found in Norway, Sweden Denmark and mainland Europe.
Designed to be used/held in the same fashion as an ax or small sword, the simple wedge shape and thick cross section allowed for ease of chop cuts and piercing shields and some armor.
Combined with Shadow Tech's uniquely adjustable sheath system, the Seax can be positioned wherever you want, for immediate deployment when you need it NOW.
