This Greek Xiphos has a blade of high carbon steel with an antiqued bronze finish. The composite hilt is composed of a thick blade tang fitted between two plates of carved and polished bone. The bone plates are overlaid with exterior bronze-finished plates and the whole construction is solidly riveted into form. The pommel is steel with an antiqued bronze finish.

The wood-core scabbard is overlaid with leather finished with fittings of antiqued copper. The embellished chape piece is bone between decoratively perforated copper plates.


This Greek Xiphos takes it styling from an example found as a grave good in an ancient Greek colony near Alfadena in Italy. The presence of the Greeks on the Italian peninsula had a profound influence shaping the culture of the early Romans and the other Italic tribes. This is reflected in their wargear which borrowed much from the Greek hoplite, including the iconic Greek Xiphos sword.

This Xiphos bears much of the bronze age stylings typical with European swords of that era; The shorter blade is less prone to bending than a longer blade and the leaf-blade shape concentrates mass in the main striking region of the sword to emphasize cutting and chopping. A large, pipe-like central ridge stiffens and strengthens the body of the sword - a clever innovation when making a sword from softer bronze before the weaponry revolution of iron and steel.
