Sax from Beagnoth with silver and gold inlays - Limited luxury version
A replica of an Anglo-Saxon long saxe from the 9th century, limited to 250 copies worldwide. The original was found in the Thames in London in 1857 and is now on display in the British Museum. It is therefore also called the Thames Scramasax or Thames sword.
The blade is lavishly engraved and provided with a runic inscription, the first part reproducing the Anglo-Saxon Futhark. The second part of the inscription is "Beagnoth", probably the name of the bearer or armorer.
Our reconstruction largely resembles the early medieval original in terms of shape and dimensions. As in the original, the inscription is shown with gold and silver inlays. The single-edged blued blade is unsharpened and has a narrow, but deep, continuous fuller next to the inscription. The wooden handles are attached to the tang with brass rivets.
A robust and stylish sheath made of cowhide is included in the scope of delivery. In contrast to the conventional version, the scabbard of the limited precious replica has four brass applications with a knot pattern.
