    It is made of Sverker 21 (D2) and it is 6 mm thick. At the back there is the head of a heron curved. The handles are a bit too big though because I tried to give the kopis an ancient, austere style but I am not sure if I have finally made it :). Anyway, this has been my first kopis, I believe the next ones will improve. The sheath is made of pine wood as the back side, leather in front and a bronze guard around its mouth. There is a kind of mechanism on the wooden back that allows the sheat to be worn on the waist as well as over the shoulder.

    The back side of the sheath:
