A Viking weapon of Scandinavian origins, the 8th Century, Scramasax Knives were a staple of late Nordic culture. Made of iron, these knives were comparable to the iconic Seax. Single-edged, blades were 4 to 20 inches in length. Unlike most Viking blades, The Scramasax was a two-piece construct. Handles were "riveted" onto the blade, and quite broad in design. They featured a large Pommel. Leather was stretched (wet) on the handle and allowed to dry for a tight fit. Variants of this blade would continue to be produced until the 15th Century (Regionally).
