Khopesh by teh50calFerretz Khopesh by teh50calFerretz
This is a sword I got over Christmas break, it is an ancient Egyptian Khopesh (or commonly referred to just as an Egyptian sword, or an Anubis sword), definitely the most unique blade in my collection :D. The reason its kinda smudgy is because the photo was taken right after I took it out of the box.

This sword is false edged(not sharpened) for arena and reenactment use, etc, it is handmade forged high carbon steel, and due to the thickness of the blade it is very strong, and durable.
This is just a plane sword so it only cost $130(trust me that's cheap for a sword) I love this because its so unique in the shape, and the general design is just so interesting,the sword design has a lot of history to it, being that it originates in ancient Egypt, this blade itself is very heavy, and carries with itself a certain atmosphere, like it should be in the temple of Anubis or something :P

Oh, I can give you the place where I got it, its a website, it has both decorational, and functional(such as this one) swords, only downside is this company makes their swords really well, but a bit overly heavy, because they aren't balanced the greatest, but still very good!!!

but here ya go, you can bookmark that or whatever, and in time, maybe you can get yourself one ^^

to tell you the truth, i like the look of the ninjato more, but the katana is a better sword
