You might be surprised to know that there are actually quite a few different King Leonidas Spartan swords floating around out there. The one you’re looking at is a limited edition release of the sword’s most popular model. But you’ll also see knock-off versions made of solid wood, or coated in a black anodized finish. They’re harder to find, and they’re not as good as the original.
Take a look at this limited edition release and you’ll see why:
This particular Spartan sword has been manufactured to be as exact to the movie version as possible. It’s even made of distressed steel to give it a “battle-worn” feel. King Leonidas wouldn’t use anything different.
The blade is full-tang, made of high carbon steel, and comes pre-oiled. It measures 26 inches long, adding to the sword’s overall length of 34 inches. The Spartan’s handle is made of the same high carbon steel as well, wrapped in tightly-wound leather cord.
It also comes with a faux leather sheath with a belt strap, so it can be affixed securely to the side of your outfit if needed.
We think this is the truest 300 replica blade available, and since it’s a limited edition, it’s best to act quickly if you want it.
