Did Troy really exist? There are ruins in Asia Minor that many archaeologists think may be the walled city where Greeks may have settled and thrived, but we only have the writings of Homer that tell of it. This sword takes its name from the fabled city, with its leaf-shaped blade and beautiful hardwood and bronze hilt that could have fought off enemies for years.
A number of swords from different cultures were the inspiration for this Sword of Troy: the goal was to create an unusual, beautiful and functional edged weapon. It unites aspects of the Greek xiphos, Roman gladius, edged weapons of the Bronze Age Urnfield culture, and even the Germanic spatha sword of the Migration period.
The robust steel blade, which has a narrow fuller, starts with a short ricasso and then swells into a spatulate shape. The hilt consists of a simple crossguard of bronze and a grip and pommel made of wood. The rivet in the ball-shaped pommel is covered with a decorative bronze plate and the grip has dark grooves that alternate with bronze bands.
Our Sword of Troy comes with a brown leather scabbard.
