The skramasaksi is a weapon also known as "power-knife" since it is mainly used for combat. It can be rarely found in Sartola's shops, and on Sartola's tribesmen.

URW Game Encyclopedia description

The official URW in-game encyclopedia (accessed by the F1 key) describes the skramasaksi thusly:

Also known as the "power-knife", "väkipuukko" in UnReal Language. "Väki" could be translated as "power" and "force", specially in the meaning of vital force connected with supernatural powers. The skramasaksi has a blade as long as 8" long.

Real life context

The scramaseax or scramasax (or just seax or sax) was a large, straight-bladed knife of European late antiquity and the early medieval period. Sax knives were multipurpose (tools and self-defence weapons). Their blades came with some variations in shape (regular or irregular) and edges.

The name is an old Germanic term for knife, appearing in early medieval languages such as Old English, Frisian and Frankish. Skramasaksi is the Finnish rendering of the term. There is also a more native Finnish term for this type of late Iron Age knife, väkipuukko. This term is often translated into English as "dagger", though the sax doesn't necessarily have to take the form of a dagger.
