Vikings did not spend all their time fighting. They did other tasks as well and need something like the Viking Huntsman’s Hadseax Knife. Made from 1075 high carbon steel, this knife has a sheepsfoot style, single-edged blade. Two thin fullers run down the length of the blade near the spine.
Then, the knife has a steel bolster before the hilt. The hilt has a wooden grip with bone spacers on each end. There is engraved cross-hatching on both bone spacers. The hilt ends with a flat steel pommel. The pommel has a ring. A leather loop secures onto the ring to help with holding onto the knife. Finally, the knife comes with a leather sheath. The brown sheath features an embossed knotwork dragon design. On the side, the sheath has a pair of antiqued brass rings. The rings allow for using cords to attach the sheath to a belt or sash. Cords do not come included. This functional knife is useful for a variety of tasks. Bring the Viking Huntsman’s Hadseax Knife to your next reenactment.

This is the perfect accessory for a Norse maiden and can be used for meal preparation, trimming tablet weaving strands, or many other tasks. The blade is a tad short to be a “true” huntsman knife. I bought one of these for my girlfriend for her Viking village dress. It was a perfect accessory. the carving on the leather scabbard is very tastefully done.
