Xiphos Sword: The Ancient Greek Combat Essential

Rekindle the valor of the Ancient Greek infantry with the Xiphos sword, a symbol of combat expertise and a testament to Greek martial artistry.

Signature Characteristics

  • History & Use: As the principal short sword of the hoplites, the xiphos was wielded by the formidable warriors of Ancient Greece. Primarily used when the spear - the primary weapon in formations like the phalanx - was rendered ineffective, the xiphos was the hoplite's reliable sidekick in the thick of battle. Designed to slash and thrust with equal prowess, it was indispensable in close combat scenarios.
  • Design Origin: With roots possibly tracing back to Greece's Bronze Age, the xiphos underwent multiple design evolutions. However, by the Classical Greek era, it had become a standardized sidearm.

Blade Essence

  • Material: This xiphos boasts a blade crafted from Pattern-welded Damascus steel, known for its durability and sharpness.
  • Construction: With 11 individual steel pieces, folded meticulously five times, the blade showcases 352 distinct layers.
  • Performance: A Rockwell hardness rating of 55-56 HRC ensures that the sword remains sharp, yet flexible. The 1095 steel variant, known for its high carbon content, guarantees an edge that's razor-sharp while offering the resilience essential for combat.
  • Hilt: Designed for a comfortable and sturdy grip, the hilt is forged from micarta, accentuated by brass bolsters.
  • Protection: A finely crafted leather sheath accompanies the sword, ensuring both safety and aesthetic appeal.
