As defined by the Cleasby & Vigfusson Old Norse to English dictionary:
- kamp-höfði (kamp-hǫfði)
- a, m. a ‘whisker-head,’ Fagrsk. § 174, v. 1. knapp-höfði, q. v.
Orthography: The Cleasby & Vigfusson book used letter ö to represent the original Old Norse vowel ǫ. Therefore, kamp-höfði may be more accurately written as kamp-hǫfði.
