Group effort between Knives By Hand and with Neem out of Nepal, bringing forth the Ancient KHOPESH . The earliest production was in 2500 BC. 4500 years ago. We worked on this project for many weeks to recreate this blade. The khopesh evolved from similar crescent-shaped axes that were used in warfare
Used for both long range as well as close quarter attacks, the original Khopesh was made of bronze. It was designed to trap an enemy’s arm or for hooking enemy shields out of the way. This remake is done, but with steel. The full tang handle has a steel pommel. The blade is only sharpened on the outside portion of the curved end as was the original.
The custom sheath is made by Nikki out of Colorado. This would be excellent for wall decoration that could be taken down and used. It is Made for real world use. Video of chopping through Bodark wood to test it’s strength.
The knife will vary a few grams as they are hand forged. Price Includes Sheath and shipping inside the USA
