Norse Daggers

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. Here at Buying a Sword, we carry a great selection of Viking daggers and Anglo-Saxon blades crafted from fine materials like high carbon steel with wood, horn, and bone handles. We offer pieces with darkened and polished finishes.

The Seax is based on its historical namesake, which was universally used in Northern Europe. Also called the sax, it was carried by Saxons, Angles, Vikings, and German tribes, and probably originated even before the fall of Rome.
