Leaf Blade Sword

Primary Material: Iron or Bronze An archaic sword design of very ancient lineage which existed in bronze form well before the Classical period. Both bronze and iron versions of this weapon were used by the Celts, the ancient Greeks, the early Romans, and by various other peoples around Central and Southern Europe. The Spartan xiphos was a leaf-bladed sword. Like many ancient sword types, these weapons did not have any hand protection to speak of. The shape of the blade, broader and heavier toward the end, moves the balance toward the point and makes it highly effective for chopping attacks, though it is also effective for thrusting. If the broad double-edged blade does successfully penetrate in a thrust, it will do catastrophic damage. The sword does have a stiff, usually diamond cross sectioned blade making the sword strong enough for thrusting through tough targets.
