Athena is a new thermoforming manufacturing process that we have developed in order to offer high quality products at the cutting edge of technology.
Thanks to this new process, we have taken the quality of our products to a higher level. Safe due to reinforced tips, durable due to quality materials and foam fusion during thermoforming, incredible balance due to our weighting system in the handles, flawless blades due to our high precision molds and daggers ready to parry due to a more robust fiberglass rod.
Weapon, tool, and multi-use knife, the seax or scramasaxe was widely used by germanic and scandinavian folks during the Viking age. This latex blade falls between the dagger and the utility knife, and is perfectly suited as a backup for Viking warriors and other germanic raiders in LARP, may they be berserkers, shamans, or jarls.
They had sailed along the Volga river to trade in Miklagard, the Great City where lived those so-called Romans. Their ships were loaded with furs and pelts, as well as walrus ivory and precious metal, riches from the Western Christian's temples, pillaged then melted to hide their origin. The Great City had made the fortune of many Vikings for generations, the Romans eager to trade and wealthy enough to buy, allowing the Norse to return with Eastern goods and good strong steel. Young warriors were travelling with trade expedition, ambitious youth hoping to impress the Emperor and join his personal guard, the Varangian Guard, solely composed of foreign mercenaries of Norse descent.
The Romans paid the big price for Scandinavian, Rus, and even Saxon warriors, and those serving the Emperor would leave rich as kings after the end of their duties. The old Varangians that returned North were always speaking with awe and admiration about Miklagard, or Constantinople like they called it. The young warriors were quite serious about their desire to join and were preparing their weapons with great focus in preparation for their test. Axes were sharpened, and seax were made so keen one could shave the hair or his arm with them. After all, even if all weren't selected to serve, the weapons would be useful for their return home. They had seen plenty of riches in the countries they crossed, riches ripe for raiding.
