Viking age sword, Seax and scabbards

This viking age sword and seax are companion pieces. As per the customers request we kept the details to a warriors status not kingly or farmer. The inlay designs were also suggested by the customer and are done in copper. The scabbard for the sword is a wood core of poplar and lined with wool. The details on the the seax sheath were loosely based off other historical examples. The last few images show the inlaying process.
