    A replica of an ancient Greek kopis but much smaller (34 cm instead of 60 cm) made of Sverker 21 (D2) steel. 6 mm thick. Hardness: 59,5 HRC. Panther-like tail, although at first I wanted to make it a bird.

    Very interesting, thanks! I thought this shape of the blade was more typical for Turkish yatagans or Nepalese kukris...

    Of Nepalese kukris yes, since the Nepalese kukris are straight descendants of the Macedonian kopis brought there by the Macedonian troops of Alexander the Great.

    This makes a lot of sense. I didn't know that. Thank you for the information!
