Chieftan's Sax Chieftan's Sax
Chieftan's Sax

Every Viking Chieftain was familiar, if not an expert, with sword, shield, spear and axe. But these are long and heavy and often bulky weapons that were not always within reach, so they almost universally carried a large Sax for 24-hour protection. Suspended from the belt in front or back (where it didn't interfere with other weapons like their sword or hand axe), it was instantly available if suddenly attacked and was often used in tandem with other weapons.

While most Sax blades resemble the profile of Cold Steel®'s Woodsman's Sax (Product No. 88HUA) with a straight edge and sloping point, there were popular variations like the broke back Chieftan's Sax Cold Steel® is introducing here.

Forged out of high carbon steel with a hard spring temper and satin polished, it boasts a broke back blade profile, where the line formed by the spine rises then falls abruptly to the point of giving the illusion of a clip point bowie knife while actually predating the bowie by many centuries! Since the Chieftan's Sax is meant to be a weapon first and a tool a distant second, it comes with a modestly sized brass guard that serves to keep the fingers from sliding forward on to the blade while offering a modicum of protection from opposing weapons.
But it is the handle of the Chieftan's Sax that Cold Steel® is especially proud of. Intricately hand-carved in deep relief in link pattern, it is visually stunning and complements the matching brass guard and pommel.

Each Chieftan's Sax comes with a period correct brown leather scabbard with brass accents, a leather-laced seam and period correct leather carrying straps.

1055 High Carbon Steel
The carbon content and lean alloy of this shallow hardening steel make this a very sturdy material that avoids a lot of the brittleness commonly associated with higher carbon materials. Particularly suited to blades requiring impact resistance, it's often seen in large fixed blades and swords.
