Finally, an explanation of those curled handled "Viking knives" that aren't found in Viking age burials! "Vestjyske jernknive" by Olav Martinsen, Skjern-Egvad Museum, Denmark. This type of Iron Age knife is found in both male and female graves in South Scandinavia, and dates to 500 BCE- 0 CE. Definitely NOT Viking Age!

Knife was found in the neighbourhood Färgaren in the city of Lund. The sheath consists of shaped leather decorated with small silver rivets and a single bronze fitting for suspension to a belt. I believe the original is about 11th century CE.
