With its curved, sickle-like shape, the khopesh of Ancient Egypt was a very deadly, and highly versatile, weapon. This Warriors Khopesh Sword recreates its shape for the modern-day enthusiast to own, enjoy, and even carry, if they should so desire. The swords blade is crafted entirely in high carbon steel, and it features a large, forward-set blade that is deeply curved along its length. The spine of the blade is thickly reinforced for strength, while the swords edge is left blunt, for safety. The handle is made from wood and accented with slight touches of brass-metal for adornment, while also possessing a uniquely curved design that fits nicely into the hand when held. Distinctive and deadly looking, this Warriors Khopesh Sword brings the weapons of war from Ancient Egypt back to life, so that an enthusiast might add it to their collection. And given that khopesh swords are not common, this sword is a piece that no collector should be without.
The khopesh is old – very old. Its origins can be traced back to the 3rd Millennium BC. Sans guard, the sword was wielded with a shield, and its hooking shape was used to either disable or remove an opponents shield, or to disarm them completely. Khopesh swords were also popular as ceremonial swords and the weapons of royalty, as pharaohs have been depicted as using them, and some have even been found in royal graves.
