Early example, with form descended directly from the Frankish scramasax. Iron, just under 9” length with 5 3/8” wedge section blade with straight back and acutely angled point. Straight edge and of particularly section which distinguished these as weapons and not working knives. Designed for slashing, the fighting technique favored by Vikings.
