Viking / Saxon Sax Dagger & Leather Sheath

Ref: S5717M Viking / Saxon Sax Dagger & Leather Sheath The Sax dagger was carried by the Saxons and Vikings between the 4th and 10th centuries, this was utilized as both a tool and a weapon. Carried horizontally at the back of the belt, the Sax 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 Sax, which evolved from similar weapons in bronze (and later iron) used by the Celts, is portrayed in the decoration of the guard and pommel. This exquisite piece and would make an ideal gift or display item
