Regular price $400.00 Sale

9th-11th century AD. Just over 5 5/8” length. Classic form with dropped point and near straight back. Tapered tang for mounting to a grip without a guard. Classic form and very superior condition with its fine edge nearly as when used. These were side knives for close combat battle used for thrusting and slashing. Throat slashing was a favorite Viking tactic in hand-to-hand fighting as its results were immediate, freeing the warrior to defend against other threats.
