The Viking Scramasax dagger, a weapon and tool carried by both Saxons and Vikings between the 4th and 10th centuries. Pictured here on a white background as a cut out image if required. Shown with its celtic symbol and leather belt sheath. Carried horizontally at the back of the belt, the Scramasax provided the spearman with a close-quarters weapon when needed, and its broad blade could handle many day-to-day chores. The ancestry of the Scramasax, which evolved from similar weapons in bronze (and later iron) used by the Celts, is portrayed in the decoration of the guard and pommel.
