Vikings evolved multiple fighting techniques depending on circumstances. The sword and axe served on the battlefield. When raiding, they employed brutal hand-to-hand techniques which included throat-slashing for which these small knives are particularly suited. They perhaps had mystical significance as well, as these small knives were buried with Viking warriors instead of the larger scramseaxes. This example is just under 3” total length with straight back and thick wedge section with “whittle tang” which was embedded in a one-piece wood, bone or antler grip. Superior preservation. With certificate of authenticity and Plexiglas display easel..
