You do some really nice work. I like the overal seax blade shape, but my personal leaning for handle design is for slab type construction with a pommel or exposed endpiece to prevent damage to the handle material. How thick do you generally make the blades on your seaxs, and how much would you charge for a "low finish" blade that would see rough work?

This is a realy kind offer, but at the moment I need my money together...
Otherwise I would jump at you now and cheer like a child before Julfest ;) Screeming, yes yes yes!

But probably there will be a day in future, where I could ask :X If that's okay for you.
