The kopis was a blade favored by the ancient Greek warriors, its name literally translating to the phrase "to cut". And with its forward sweeping, convex blade, cutting is something that the Kopis Sword with Brass Handle does very well. A traditional kopis has a single-edged blade that angles forward slightly towards the point. The edge of the sword was typically the most narrow near the hilt, while the blade swelled towards the tip, creating a distribution of weight that allowed the kopis to deliver a blow with the momentum and power of a axe, while retaining the lengthy cutting edge of a sword, as well as the all-important ability to thrust (Greek tactics often depended on quickly thrusting and retreating behind the shield wall of a phalanx). This kopis retains the classic shape, featuring a nearly-straight back edge, as well as a blade that is wider and curved near the tip. Simple curved fullers have been carved into the length of the blade to reduce weight, and the sword's hilt possesses an equally impressive looking design featuring an attractive, curving brass handle set with ornate etchings. This kopis sword measures 25 inches in overall length. Not only is the Kopis Sword With Brass Handle a fantastic sword that makes a great display item and collector's piece, it is also a great way to add an authentic Greek weapon to any of your possible historic looks.
