This impressive little Viking dagger features a broad double edged carbon steel blade that possesses a double fuller along its spine, which helps to reduce its weight without compromising the blades strength. The blade comes factory dull to allow for personal sharpening preferences depending on intended usage. The daggers guard consists of an intricately detailed brass crossbar that is decorated with knotwork designs, while the turned wood grip features a bronze braided wire wrap to ensure a good, solid hold. Included with the Viking Broad Dagger is a wooden sheath wrapped in black leather that is equipped with brass throat and tip. This dagger measures over 17 inches long and is hand forged and crafted by artisans Deepeeka. Deepeeka is world renown for their skills and dedication to building fine historic weapons and armour reproductions.

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.
