The Egyptian Khopesh first became popular around 3000 BC when Upper and Lower Egypt were first united under one Pharaoh. From then on it was an important weapon in the Egyptian foot soldier’s arsenal. Originally made of bronze and later iron, the Khopesh could be sharpened on either side or both. In this case the edge is on the outside curve. Features an unsharpened high carbon steel blade with raised brass accents. The grip is made of wood. No scabbard available.
Grip wood color may vary from brown to nearly black.
