For this IQP, our team seeks to research the historical evolution of the Viking Seax knife from its origins as a farming tool to its future use as a weapon, and to investigate the varying material properties of the blade through the various stages of forging that it would be subjected to. An integral part of this project is the creation of a Seax knife of our own through historically accurate methods.
