Middle seax Ulfeid, class B
A seax in modern times is often called scramasaxor scramaseax,from scrama "wound" (cf. German Schramme "flesh wound", Dutch schram "scar") and seax (cf. German Sahs "dagger"). However, as the word 'scramasaxi' is only used once in early medieval literature (In Gregory of Tours 'History of the Franks'), the general use of the term when referring to all short knives of this type is erroneous. The Saxons may have derived their name from seax (the implement for which they were known). The seax has a lasting symbolic impact in the English counties of Essex and Middlesex, which both feature three seaxesin their ceremonial emblem. Source: Wikipedia More information...
