5 5/8” length.  Scramseax form. Tapered thin wedge section slashing blade, the point dropping slightly.  Whittle tang to set in wood or antler grip.

(See https://leatherworkingreverend.files.wordpress.com/2009/07/dsc01382.jpg and https://inhabitat.com/melting-glaciers-reveal-items-lost-in-the-stone-age/ for similar examples with original grips.) These side knives were always at hand for settling quarrels. The blades are uniformly not compromised from sharpening indicating that they were weapons and not working knives. So highly regarded by Vikings, that it was these and not the large scramseax with which they were buried. With Plexiglas display easel and certificate of authenticity.
