The Spatha, a Roman sword, was a slashing weapon used by the Spartan Infantry while riding horseback. This sword is often confused with the more popular Gladius sword because of their similarities. The main difference between the two is the Spatha has far more length than the Gladius. From handle to tip, this Ancient Greek Infantry Hand Forged Damascus Steel Spatha Sword is nothing less than pure beauty and quality. A wooden handle finish adorns the bone and brass fixtures for a classic look and a smooth feel within the hands. The blade features true forged Damascus steel molting or banding pattern that is reminiscent of flowing water which serves a dual purpose of beauty as well as making the blade tougher and shatter resistant. There are three blood groves on both sides of the blade to reduce weight on the thickest area of the spine without sacrificing strength. There are 176 blade layers and the blades temper is around 54 to 55. This knife comes with a dark brown, two tone, leather sheath with decorative tooling patterns and a belt loop featuring two reinforcing studs for a sturdy hold.
