9th-10th century AD. Just over 5 1/4” length. Classic form with dropped point and near the straight cutting edge. Tapered tang for mounting to a grip without a guard. This example is distinguished by the thinness of the blade, 2.3mm at the back less than 1/10 of an inch. It is made for the single purpose of delivering a slashing wound. A working knife or multipurpose knife would be minimal, twice this thickness. This is a thousand-year-old Viking throat-slashing weapon.
