The small personal knives that Vikings valued above the scramseax and with which they were buried. Proportioned for throat-slashing in a hand to hand fight. This example is 5 3/8” length with a broad wedge section blade with a slightly dropped point in the scramseax form. Tapered tang for embedding in horn or bone grip. Made without a guard as it was an extension of the fist and not used to parry a knife thrust. Professionally conserved excavated condition on Plexiglas display stand with a certification of authenticity. Substantial size and form
