Seax (Old English pronunciation: [ˈsæɑks]; also sax, sæx, sex; invariant in plural, latinized sachsum) is an Old English word for "knife". In modern archaeology, the term seax is used specifically for a type of sword or dagger typical of the Germanic peoples of the Migration period and the Early Middle Ages, especially the Saxons, whose name derives from the weapon.

Carbon steel knife blades are harder and have a finer grain structure than stainless steel. To properly care for a carbon steel blade, you must hand wash it with a mild soap and dry it thoroughly after each use. Never place your knife in the dishwasher. With care, over time, a carbon steel blade will develop a deep gray/blue patina from exposure to different elements. This coating is similar to the seasoning of a well-used cast iron skillet, as it will protect the blade from rust and discoloration. This dark patina is the sign of a favorite, well-used knife. Taking a page from sushi chefs, a moist towel can be used to wipe your blade between use with different foods. This is most critical when cutting highly acidic foods. Oiling periodically is a good idea
