8th-10th century AD. 9 3/8 total length with 5 ¼” blade. This is a thousand-year-old Viking throat-slashing weapon. Classic form with dropped point and near straight cutting edge. The tang full length with the tip curled over indicating that it originally was mounted to a bone grip without a guard. This example is distinguished by the thinness of the blade, which verifies the it is not a work knife but a weapon. It is made for the single purpose of delivering a slashing wound. A working knife or multipurpose knife would be minimally, twice this thickness.  Professionally conserved on a Plexiglas display mount with certificate of authenticity.
