    Circa 5th Century BC

    This version of the Lakonian short sword was copied from the book The Spartan Army. The Spartan army was one of the toughest on record; they devoted themselves to being the best of the best.  This is a potent weapon that would be superb in the brutality of ancient hand to hand combat. The leaf shaped blade is high carbon steel, grip is bronze. Scabbard is wood covered in leather.  A very effective close combat short sword. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts®.

    Just received my two Spartan Swords today, and I can't believe how magnificent these swords are! The balance and feel of blades are perfect. The materials used and the overall craftsmanship are unmatched! Any Spartan would be proud to carry a weapon such as this into battle. Thank you MRL for the best set of swords I own! And thank you to my girlfriend who purchased them for me!

    Absolutely Stunning. The Bronze looks much better in person than in the picture. Sharpened means razor sharp. Nicely balanced about a centimeter above the edges of the guard. A truly quality piece that does justice to its inspiration.

    Was lucky enough to get this on the 50% daily deal. GREAT blade; exquisite red-bronze hilt, superb balance, and secure fitments on the scabbard. I got it sharpened (ALWAYS pay to sharpen these things) & personalized, and the letters were most impressive. A superior close-combat weapon - I can see why the Spartans liked them this way. The only thing that keeps me from giving it 5 stars is the leaf-shaped blade was actually a bit asymmetrical; while this indicates genuine hand-forging, it was a minor disappointment for a fussed-over, personalized blade. I would suggest that if a customer sinks all that "extra" into the purchase, that the shippers shouldn't just grab some random blade out of the pile. Still, most happy.

    Great purchase. Arrived exactly as shown. Sharpened version comes amazingly sharp (not to be played with at all). It's my favorite sword of my collection. I love how the handle (bronze) darkens with use. A good buy.

    So far, my only MRL purchase has been the Lakonia Short Sword's precedessor, then called a Celtic Leaf Bladed Sword. Sure, I love it, but it wasn't well-balanced; a weighty 'pommel' had to be fitted to the handle's protruding nipple. Sexiest blade shape!

    I have to say that this looks and feels the most historical of all my weapons. The handle has darkened (Bronze)from handling so much but I like it that way. If you request for sharp, they will exceed your expections. You can't play around with it. It's safely on my wall.
