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 Materials

True modern Greek Xiphos

The diamond edge on this blade is very fine and a work of art of its own. The blade is beautifully balanced and the rosewood with the visible full tang is just a really great addition. The D2 steel shines in the light and feels like true craftsmanship in your hand, Greek-style craftsmanship.

Thank you, Battling Blades.
