Kris Cutlery XIPHOS Greek Sword

Popular during Ancient Greece is the Xiphos sword used by the Hoplites. The double edge blade has a leaf shape with a simple cross guard, grip and a cylindrical metal pommel. A lot are depicted in ancient Greek base. Kris Cutlery Xiphos is based on specimens in the museums.  

The leaf shape blade is 23-1/8” long made from a hand forged 5160 steel hardened on the edged. A ¼” wide groove in the middle of the blade extends a few inches from the tip. Measuring a thick 5/16” at the base, the blade thickness tapers to slightly over 1/16” an inch from the point. The hilt has a thick polished iron cross guard, brown hardwood grip and a solid iron cylindrical pommel. The tang is permanently bolted to the pommel.

 Wooden scabbard is wrapped with black leather with a brown spiral wrap originally to prevent the two pieces of scabbard from splitting open.  There are two brass loop rings on one side of the scabbard.

One can feel the nice weight of this well balanced sword. The blade is sharp.
