8 5/8” total length. Thick wedge section blade with slightly down curved tip. Near crisp with much original very light tool finish. Long thick tang, the tip bent over to secure it to the wood, bone or antler grip, now perished. Notably, the tang is thicker than the blade at its root, precluding a cross guard as is correct for this type. These side knives were among the most treasured possessions for Vikings and it was they, rather than the large seax with which they were buried. A fine weapon, suitable for throat slashing as well as organ depth thrusting attacks. East Anglia was the landing place for Viking invaders. Virtually every old town in Cambridgeshire has a recorded Viking history. Mercia Abbey razed and the monks slaughtered by Vikings, and in 1010 the Viking victory at Ringmere, to mention two. Excavated and professionally conserved.
