9th-11th century AD. 7 3/8” length. Classic form with dropped point and near straight back. Tapered tang for mounting to a grip without a guard, the tip bent over as it protruded from the butt of a wood or bone grip, and defining the original length of the weapon. Distinguished by the thinness of the blade, which confirms that 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 minimal, twice this thickness. This is a thousand-year-old Viking throat-slashing weapon.
