A popular weapon among Germanic tribes, the Anglo-Saxons, and the Vikings, the seax is named for the Old English word for knife. The traditional seax, also called a sax, scramaseax, and scramasax, typically features a blade with a single edge and a centerline tang, which could range in length from 3-4 inches to around 28 inches. Broken-back seax display a dramatic sharp angle between the back and point of the blade. This Norse dagger serves well for fighting and everyday work.
