Xiphos Sword Description

The Greek xiphos sword is a double-edged, one-handed Iron Age straight short sword used by ancient Greeks. The classic blade was between 20” and 25” in. The xiphos sometimes has a midrib, and is diamond or lenticular in cross-section. It was generally hung from a baldric under the left arm. The xiphos was generally used only after the spear was discarded for close combat. Very few original xiphos sword have survived. The xiphos' leaf-shaped design allowed it to be used for cutting and thrusting. The design has likely been in existence since the appearance of the first swords. The leaf-shaped short swords were not limited to Greece and can be found throughout Europe in the late Bronze Age. 

Blade Details

The xiphos sword is made from Pattern welded Damascus steel.  Pattern welded Damascus steel is a hard heat treated, folded carbon steel.  There are 11 pieces of steel, folded five times, making 352 layers.  The steel is the perfect combination of hardness and durability with a Rockwell hardness rating between 55 and 56 HRC.  High carbon damascus steel must contain layers of high carbon steel.  The high carbon steel we use is 1095 steel which is the highest content carbon steel used in swords.  The combination of the steel layers creates a sword that is strong enough to hold a powerful edge while having the strength and flexibility to withstand powerful collisions.  This makes the perfect steel for swords.  The handle is wood, elegantly stained.  It comes with a leather sheath.
