While curved swords might have been used by the Greeks for their cutting power, oftentimes Greek hoplites and warriors were equipped with a straight sword, like the Greek Sword, because of its overall effectiveness and martial reliability. This sword features relatively simple construction, featuring a straight, effective blade, not unlike the long swords that were used and favored during later eras of history. The sword features a simple subtly convex handle that makes for an effective grip. A round pommel acts as a counterweight to the blades balance, while the guard is little more than a simple t-bar. The swords blade is a straight edge that curves near the tip to form a rounded point. This sword is included with a simple sheath that features brass fittings. The sword has an overall length of 32 inches. While the Greek warriors did often favor a shorter blade, some were known to use a blade like this Greek Sword when going into battle, making this weapon a great armament to include in your own Greek armory, as well as possible gift to any history enthusiasts you might know who favor the tools of war.
