Lot 0053 Details

Description
4 1/4” total length. Thick wedge section blade with slightly dropped point characteristic of the scramseax. Good profile and preservation. Short whittle tang, to secure it to the wood, bone or antler grip, now perished. These side or pouch knives were among the most treasured possessions for Vikings and it they, rather than the large seax with which they were buried. They likely had spiritual significance to the owner during his life. A fine weapon, suitable for throat slashing as well as organ depth thrusting attacks. This example was recovered in Norway. Excavated and professionally conserved with Plexiglas display easel
