This long-bladed Dark Age fighting knife is essentially a reverse-bladed Seax; the longer edge of the blade is the thicker spine. The vibrantly-patterned blade is crafted from Damascus steel; the melding of two different steels to create a single blade leaves a pattern akin to burl wood or flowing, rippled water upon the blade. The grip is hardwood surmounted by steel rondels. The weapon is paired with a seax-style sheath of durable stitched leather.

Many historical blades of the Dark Ages were crafted by patterned-welded steel. While different than damascus in process there is the similarity involved by merging two or more different steels into a single billet for forging. Pattern-welded knives are typically custom-made by individual craftsman and are quite expensive and are laboriously crafted with the intention to create specific, repetitive patterns in the steel. Simpler, folded Damascus in the form of this Dark Ages fighting knife imparts some of the aura of pattern-welded steel, typical of the dark ages, in a fighting knife at a price that is much more affordable.
