While it might not be authentic in design, the sword of the Spartans in the feature film 300 is not without its historical merits. Now you can wield one as functional and deadly as its movie cousin in this Spartan Sword with Scabbard. This sword is a stylized meld of the falcata and the Greek short sword, known as a xyphos. This meld produces a short, curved blade that provides the best of both worlds, including a good cutting edge, weight for greater power, and a point for armour-piercing thrusts. The swords blade is hand forged from dual hardened 5160 high carbon steel. Like its movie counterpart, the sword is narrow at the shoulder and widens toward the tapered, curved tip. The sword also features a distinctive curved guard that provides partial hand protection over the leather-wrapped wood grip that creates a secure and solid hold. The sword also has a full-length tang for stability and strength, which is peened to the pommel segment of the handguard. Included with the sword is a matching scabbard, which is ideally suited for storing and securing the sword when it is not in use. No sword belt is included, so you are free to carry this functional weapon however best suits you. This Spartan Sword with Scabbard is a brutal blade that is every bit as deadly as it looked in the movies, and it is a weapon that will serve any warrior well who wants to emulate the battle prowess of the legendary Spartan.
Please be aware that this sword is hand forged, and as such, its finish and its overall measurements can vary slightly from what is shown here. Also, be aware that this sword is made to be practical, tough, and hardy, and its finish, being hammered and hand forged, can sometimes feature marks from the forging process.

Beautiful sword, structurally strong and well built. I saved myself the money and sharpened it myself. Only took an hour. Used a file to do the bulk of the work then finished it with an accusharp knife sharpener. Now it could cut arms off of someone. This sword is worth the money. It is a real sword and could actually be used in a sword fight. Darksword armory that makes the sword is a great sword company!!
