The sword believed to have been carried by King Leonidas,
leader of the 300
at the battle of Thermopylae
in 480 BC. (find out more about Leonidas...)
This sword was used by the officers (lochagoi)
and leaders of the famous Spartan infantry for close combat at battles like Thermopylae and Plataies. Its sharp blade is made of high carbon steel.(more on Spartan Art of War...)
Excellent realistic feeling. Fully functional, specially designed for reenactments.
