This robust Spartan Lakonian sword has a blade of 1095 high carbon steel tempered to a hardness of 59 HRC. The hilt is of steel and the blade tang has been solidly brass riveted into the hilt in three points: two rivets in the guard and one in the pommel. The grip was overlaid with leather cord for a grip. The sword is paired with a stitched leather sheath with belt loop.

This Lakonian Xiphos sword is a thick-bladed short sword of solid construction. The sword lends itself well to thrusts, and the thick blade gives it considerable heft which can power it through strong cuts and hacks at close range. Though the blade and hilt are thick, the blade is short enough to ensure that the weapon does not feel unduly heavy and unwieldy.

At a glance the Lakonian seems to be quite the short sword, but its design was quite intentional and was well-suited for the shoulder-to-shoulder and shield-to-shield fighting that two opposing phalanxes could descend into when they closed the range between two formations. Should the front ranks of the phalanx find themselves mere feet from their opponent than they could opt to discard their Dory spears for a close-in sword ideally suited for thrusting at the face and torso of the foe at very close quarters.
