The Generation 2 version of the Viking Seax Knife is based off a 10th century version, and it is a nice match to the Witham Viking Sword. The blade is 5160 tempered carbon steel with a wood handle, wrapped in brown leather. The tang is peened over top the metal end cap of the handle. A hand stitched Leather scabbard with belt hanger is included.
A scramseax was a type of Germanic single-edged knife. Scramseax seem to have been used for warfare and as a tool. They occur in a size range from 2.9 Inches to 29.5 Inches. The larger ones (langseax) were probably weapons, the smaller ones (hadseax) tools, and intermediate sized ones serving a dual purpose. Wearing a scramseax may have been indicative of freemanship. The scramseax was worn in a horizontal sheath at the front of the belt. Scram refers to food and seax to a blade - food knife. There is some debate about the authenticity of the longer word scramseax. The Saxons may have derived their name from seax, the implement for which they were known, in much the same way that the Franks were named for their francisca. This claim is largely supported by the appearance of scramaseaxes in early Saxon heraldry.
