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. Carried horizontally, at the back of the belt, the scramasax provided the spearman with both a close-quarters weapon and a utility tool / knife and eating tool in camp.
It is patterned on a surviving blade just 3 ½” long, and while these would have been used primarily as eating utensils they could, if needed, be called upon to inflict a disabling wound. This small scramasax is authentically hilted in stag and is equipped with leather horizontal-carry sheaths.
