ENAMELED VIKING SEAX DAGGERNobleWares Image of Viking Enameled Seax Dagger & Sheath AH4170N by Deepeeka AH4170N DEEPEEKA
The Scramasax, carried by the Saxons and the Vikings between the 4th and 10th centuries, came in a wide range of sizes and was used both as a tool and a weapon. The scramasax provided the spearman with both a close-quarters weapon when needed, and it's broad blade could handle many day-to-day chores. The ancestry of the Scramasax, which evolved from similar weapons in bronze (and later iron) used by the Celts, is portrayed in the decoration of the guard and pommel. The Battle Ready AH4170N Viking Seax Dagger, with its 9-7/8 inch blade, would provide both slashing and thrusting power in battle while handling heavy-duty chores around the home and camp. This authentic reproduction is made by Deepeeka and features a blade of high carbon steel that can be sharpened or left factory blunt to suit your needs. The grip is of stained wood and the top grip ferrule and pommel are of brass, filled with decorative green enamel. Comes with a stitched leather sheath.

A scramseax (also seax ) 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" to 29.5". The larger ones (langseax) were probably weapons, the smaller ones (hadseax) tools, 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 (so, "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.
