    Celkem roztomilý kostýmový doplněk, hodí se na parádu a machrování, ale na nic moc jiného. Absence údajů o materiálu čepele komplikijí využití v bitvě, rukojeť není (alespoň pro mne) příliš ergonomická a v bitvě bych se obával vyražení zbraně z ruky. Dřevo použité na rukojeť jasně ukazuje na asijský původ zbraně. Výrobce zbraň dodává štědře naolejovanou, a to včetně rukojeti, patrně proto, aby v ruce držela ještě hůře a majitel si užil více legrace. Zpracování pochvy autentické není, v případě ostré zbraně by pochva nebyla ani dlouhodobě funkční a celkově mi připadá, že by se vzhledem hodila spíše ke kostýmu moravského šohaje. Vyloženě nelituji, že jsem scramasax koupil, ale na zadek jsem si z něj také nesedl.

The Northeners were using them for centuries. What were the benefits of combat knives?
