OVERVIEW

Adventure and conquest were both part of Viking lore and purpose. As such, they lavished creativity and imagination upon the trappings of their warrior culture - their weapons and longships. Elaborate carvings of intertwining dragons, wolves, and other beasts graced their swords, scabbard, and the prows of those sailing ships. But their creative impulses weren't limited to their "travel agenda". Domestic accouterments of the Norse also received a healthy outpouring of attention, including work knives like the scramasax. The "scramasax", "seax" or "sax" was a knife (or even a short sword) for daily use.

This Voyager Scramasax has a hand-forged 1075 high carbon steel blade with a straight cutting edge for precise control. The carved bone handle features hand-cut cross-hatching with black stain and the pommel has a lanyard ring with a leather thong. Bone is good for longship carry (since bone is impervious to humidity). The leather sheath is stained dark brown and expertly embossed with interlaced ringlets and bands. Brass hardware has an aged finish, and the reinforcing bands near the throat have two rings for threading cord or leather to attach the sheath to a belt or sash. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts and comes factory sharp.

Very Happy with it
This is a great little knife. Super stabby/acute point.. Tight fit on all the parts. Though there is no guard the cross hatching on the bone handle provides a excellent no-slip grip. The antique finish is great. Since it is a friction fit sheath the lanyard ring really helps because only about about 1-1/2" of the handle sticks out of the sheath. My only problem with this knife is we are so used to the blade edge going to the rounded side of the sheath occasionally I try to put it in upside down or is it down side up. Ha ha!

A Blade for Adventure!
Whether sailing a restless sea, or fording an Amazon river, this blade bespeaks of the Viking thirst for adventure and exploration.  Excellent for general use, or as a camp knife for the Great Outdoors.
