The Xiphos' leaf shaped design lent itself to both cutting and thrusting, our traditionally shaped Empire Battle Greek Xiphos Short Sword is just like the ones of old. The design has most likely been in existence since the appearance of the first swords. The Xiphos sometimes has a midrib, or is diamond or lenticular in cross-section. It was generally hung from a baldric under the left arm. Relatively few Xiphoi seem to have survived. This replica sword features a full tang blade that is well oiled and hardened with a high quality finish on the blade surface. The handle, guard, and pommel are cast zinc aluminum that helps to prevent rusting. The provided sheath is constructed of beautiful soft faux leather, with a combined sword belt and fully adjustable waist strap that fits most all sizes.
