Khopesh


Along with all my other obsessions I blog about, I may have forgotten to mention swords. I love them, always have. In school I wrote several research papers on swords. Yes, I was a strange child.

Well, I discovered a new sword. The Khopesh! It's Canaanite and it's magnificent. I can't believe with all the archeology and ancient history courses I took I never heard of this sword.

It features a curved blade for slashing, but it is still in line for thrusting. Beautiful. Deadly. Simply, an elegant weapon.

I have dreamed of owning a khopesh. My favorite sword. Everything beautiful originates in the Levant.
