Similar knives were used everywhere in Northern Europe up to the 14th century. The knife is reconstructed on the basis of the richly decorated scabbard, the original of which was found on the Winetavern street in Dublin. The decoration shows clear influences from late Viking and Norman art. The knife was presumably used by the Normans in Ireland or the Gaelic Irish population.
This sturdy knife is made of carbon steel with a hardness of 54 HRC. It weighs 242 gram and is 24,6 cm long, with a blade of 14 cm long. Both knife and scabbard are fully hand made.
