History: The Seax Viking Birka Knife #3 is from the family of knives known as Seax, also known as hadseax, sax, seaxe, scramaseax, scramsax, means knife or cutting tool in Old English. In modern archaeology, the term seax is used specifically for the typically large knives worn by men in the 5th to the 11th century in the region roughly enclosed by Ireland, Scandinavia, and Northern Italy. The seax was most common in Germanic Tribes and Viking culture and often featured a very elaborate and decorative sheath.
