Back-breaking Seax!

We are giving away a broken back seax generously donated by Elchon's Workshop.



Michal Plezia of Elchon's Workshop gave us a handmade one-of-a-kind broken back seax so that we could have this contest and give it away to a lucky myArmoury.com member!



Click photos for full-sized versions

The forged and ground steel blade has three different metals inlaid into it: twisted brass and silver on one side and copper on the other. A brass bolster and grip of grenadilla wood complete the seax. It also comes with a molded brown leather sheath tooled with a zoomorphic design. More information about this piece can be found in our hands-on review by Chad Arnow.

Please take a moment to visit the Elchon's Workshop Web site and see more of Michal's wares. Give him a big thanks for donating this prize!


This contest is open to all myArmoury.com members.

Here's the twist: The longer you've been a myArmoury.com member, the better your chance of winning! Your odds of winning are based on your registration date. While anyone who enters can win, the weighted odds make it payback time for the old-time site members!

  • Make sure you're logged-in before you try to enter.
  • Contest entry is open until Monday September 6, 2010.
  • All participants will be entered into a drawing and the winning names will be randomly selected later that same day.
  • Domestic shipping charges are included with the winning prize, but international winners will be required to pay for shipping.



Good luck to everyone!!

Very nice work and it would fill a gap in the collection as I don't have an actual seax although I do have a custom but modern blade of my design that could be considered " seax - like " in blade profile.

And a few bowie knives that, although not seaxs, do fill the same design niche but of a different time and culture ( Good design ideas seem to repeat over time and place ) .

Very nice of Michal Plezia to support this site with the gift of his work, and my thanks even if I don't win this one.

Best of luck to everyone. Happy Cool

Hey, only 200 entries so far. That means the odds of winning are pretty good for you guys! Then again, it's only been a few days but I figured I'd bump this up and get more to enter.

Cheers!

I'm with Sander.

As a low-posting "medium timer" here, I was hopeful we could keep this quiet after I registered to win. Wink

In all seriousness; this is a great gesture by Michal, a fine weapon anyone would be proud to own, and yet another reason why myArmoury is a premier forum.

Michal,
I appreciate the thanks, though I feel strange about being singled out or put in that company. Nathan dreamed this place up and makes it run. I just referee when needed. Happy

Personally, what makes this place cool are the people who participate: people who ask interesting questions and/or provide interesting answers, those who write articles, those who donate their time, knowledge, experience, and their wares, and so many more. This site's greatness has everything to do with those people.

I just enjoy being part of it all.

Happy

ChadA

Well against my own best interest I'm also bumping up the Topic. The contest may be weighted to give us old " veteran " longtime members better odds of winning than fresh new members but you guys also have a chance of winning, so don't be shy to participate. Wink Cool

Only about three more weeks left in this contest until the winner is chosen!

It's free to enter without any obligations. Go for it.

Another contest will follow very quickly after... and then maybe another.

Cheers!
