Obsidian Roman Short Sword


You won’t find one like this in your favorite knfe store.  It’s a Roman Short Sword with an exotic obsidian blade.  The Short Sword was an ancient Roman innovation that changed the dynamics of hand to hand combat.  The obsidian blade combines an even more ancient technology of stone blade making.  It is knapped from rainbow obsidian from Davis Creek, California.

The handle was created from a gorgeous reclaimed piece of aged, curly maple from a 140 year old tree that a storm took down on my property several years ago.  The guard and pommel are fashioned from black walnut.  Overall length of this unique weapon is 19 inches.
