Athenian Cavalry Slashing Sword (Kopis)

Athenian Cavalry Slashing Sword (Kopis)

This Athenian Kopis, used by the cavalry of Athens after the 5th century BC, has a blade of high carbon steel. The hilt is crafted from horn that is solidly riveted to the thick, full tang of the blade to construct the grip. The sheath and integrated shoulder baldric are crafted from stitched and riveted leather.

With a blade that has good distal taper, this Kopis is a swift and agile sword with additional striking mass near the tip.

Excellent realistic feeling. Fully functional, specially designed for reenactments.
