The Scramasax (or Seax), used by Saxons and the Vikings between the 4th and 10th centuries and varied considerably in size, but were mostly all-purpose tools and weapons, often carried by women as well as men. 

The seaxes have a great deal of variations in shape and construction but the most frequent characteristics are:

  • A tang in the centerline of the blade, inserted into an organic hilt (wood, horn)
  • A large single-edged blade
  • The blade is worn horizontally inside a scabbard attached to the belt, with the edge of the blade upwards
