Details

The Kopis was a one-handed sword with a forward-curving blade, primarily used as a tool for cutting meat, for slaughter and animal sacrifice. The kopis was also used in warfare as evidenced in ancient Greek art and literature although the xiphos, a straight bladed and more versatile sword, was preferred. The curved blade of the kopis was especially suited to cavalry and Xenophon recommended the curved makhaira for cavalry in "On Horsemanship".

This reproduction by Deepeeka has a curved tempered high carbon steel blade with deep incised fullers. The handle is of brass and is carved in the form of a horsehead. The handle also has two bone grips. The scabbard is red leather over a wood core. A sheath on the outside of the scabbard holds a companion knife.
