A ledgermain is a person who has learned skolding from books and not from prenticing under a skold or through formal education in a rhombus. They are considered highly inferior to a properly trained skold but provide an alternative in areas where skolds or dispensurists are scarce. Critchitichiello is a ledgermain.


The term appears to be derived from legerdemain or sleight of hand.
