Handmade Collectible knifes: The Kopis - The Nasty Spartan Weapon

As an alternative to the vrachy xiphos some Spartans selected the dreaded Kopis as their secondary weapon. This was a vicious hacking weapon in the form of a thick, curved iron sword. Spartan warriors would use this weapon more as an axe than a sword, inflicting nasty wounds compared to the cleaner holes made by the spear and xiphos. This weapon was seen as the quintessential "bad guys" weapon in ancient Greece. Athenian art frequently depicted Spartan warriors with this weapon for that reason. The kopis sword was a one-handed weapon. Early examples had a blade length of up to 65 cm. Later Macedonian examples tended to be shorter with a blade length of about 48 cm. The kopis had a single-edged blade that pitched forward towards the point, the edge being concave on the part of the sword nearest the hilt, but swelling to convexity towards the tip. This shape, often termed "recurved", distributes the weight in such a way that the kopis was capable of delivering a blow with the momentum of an axe, whilst maintaining the long cutting edge of a sword and some facility to execute a thrust.

Handmade Collectible knifes: The Spartan Short Sword (Vrachy Xiphos)- Short & Deadly

Spartan hoplite warriors carried a short sword called a vrachy xiphos. This secondary weapon would have been employed if the crush of battle rendered a hoplite's spear useless or if it was broken. Among most Greek warriors this weapon had an iron blade of about two feet (0.65 m), however the Spartan version was typically only 12-18 inches (30-45 cm). The Spartans' shorter weapon proved deadly in the crush caused by colliding phalanxes' formations were it was capable of being thrust through gaps in the enemie's shield walls and armor were there was no room for longer weapons. The groin and throat were favorite targets of the tenacious Spartans. In one account, an Athenian asked a Spartan why his sword was so short and after a short pause he replied: Its long enough to reach your heart.
