The leaf-blade refers to a series of blade designs with distinctly characteristic curves. Our design is inspired by the historical examples and artwork of the Xiphos, used by ancient Greek soldiers. It was a light and durable short sword capable of both cutting and thrusting.
It's perfect for any classical period and makes a fantastic alternative to any single-hand sword combat. It has also gained more modern popularity in the fantasy genre due to media such as the Lord of the Rings films. Pair it with one of our shields for a excitingly new take on sword & shield combat!
