Greek Swords, Greek Hoplite Swords, Spartan Swords and Greek Falcata Swords

Among Greek hoplites, the favored weapon was often the spear, used in conjunction with the shield. Yet every warrior also carried a sword, to act as a side-arm and replacement, should the spear be lost. And indeed, many Greek swords were every bit as deadly as the spear was. At Dark Knight Armoury, we love our weapons, and in this section we bring to you some of the blades that Grecian warriors would have favored in their many battles. Among Greek swords, there are several classifications. The xiphos is perhaps one of the most well-known. A xiphos is a straight, double-edged, one-handed sword that was commonly favored by all hoplites. The Spartans, perhaps, were most famous for it, as their xiphos was made to be short - to draw them closer to their enemies, it has been said. The kopis is another style of Greek blade - single-edged and designed so that the blade swelled near the point, creating a sword that delivered axe-like cutting power. Likewise, the falcata is a similarly styled blade that combines the mobility and speed of a sword with a forward-swept edge that cuts with all the power of an axe. Pick one of these three styles of sword, and you will be armed in true Greek fashion. Add in that many of these Greek swords are battle-ready, and Dark Knight Armoury will become your favorite spot to visit when it comes to acquiring some incredibly historic blades.
