During the Great Migration of the Peoples, as well as in the early Middle Ages, scramasaxes were widely distributed in Europe. Scramasax is a straight-bladed single-edged weapon with a length of less than 72 cm. By size, one can distinguish long scramasaxes derived from the Byzantine-Sassanid area and the short ones representing the evolution of the late-Roman and, possibly, German fighting knives.

Keywords: scramasax, fighting knife, Byzantium, Rome, the Sassanids
