This robust Greek Kopis is made as durable as possible with full-tang construction and its wide forward-sloping blade is capable of supremely powerful chops, cuts and deep slashes. The blade is forged from 5160 high carbon steel which has been differentially tempered to possess a hardened, dull-resistant edge of 54-55 HRc, a body of 45-46 HRc and a shock absorbing spine of 22-25 HRc. The blade is thoroughly etched and embellished on both sides with chisel-work design.
The grip is formed from two halves of well-polished wood which are riveted to the blade tang for an altogether tough and dependable construction. Included with the sword is a wooden sheath which is bound in genuine water buffalo rawhide. Included is a frog of silver faux leather which allows for the sword to be worn. The buttoned retaining strap secures the sword in place when sheathed.
