Having made a coupe of my own, the Khopesh gives you an awesome range of attacks that your targets are not used to, and open up some unusual opportunities.

Very nice work yours was an inspiration for my pieces (seen in my gallery)
Nice work with the core as well, as I am guessing you cutom-core them?

Like ~xanene and ~SpiderBartox I would like to know how you are able to create a Khopesh-Sward?
Is there fibreglas inside ore is the weapon without any inlay?
I am playing LARP for many years now (in germany) and I always tried to find a weapon like thith WITH inlay...

Nice craftsmanship, man. Have you done other bladed weapons or crafts similar to this?

Thanks.....I was a bit dubious of whether a Khopesh could really be used in combat but having made one, even though it is foam customers report they are a mean weapon.
