    Circa 5th Century BC

    The Greek Hoplite was a tough, effective citizen-soldier and was ferocious in defense of his home city. A leaf shaped blade such as the one on this sword, circa the 5th century BC, was quite popular throughout the ancient world. and is based on many illustrations and excavated examples.  Features include steel guard and pommel with leather covered wood grip and high carbon steel blade. Includes leather covered wood scabbard; this is one of the finest of the ancient world's weapons. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts®, it can be sharpened for additional charge.

    I love this sword! Like the Roman gladius, this one is a jack-of-all-trades weapon. Strong enough to withstand some really heavy blows, and reasonably light to deliver consecutive strikes and thrusts. The only downside I can say is that the hilt and pommel are not covered by leather, and so they require almost daily oiling to prevent them from rusting, more so than the blade itself. Also, make sure you are wearing gloves while using it, as your hand could end up sliding towards the hilt or pommel, wearing them down. But nonetheless, this is an excellent weapon for beginners as it has much of the strength of the Viking sword without being bulky, and much of the speed of a Rapier without being fragile
