On the topic of expensive knives, I've wanted to pick up a DV-2 for a while now, but the only readily available ones in the US are the "fancy" satin finish ones and I can't really justify the price for what is essentially one of the bowie-sized Ka-Bars.

This Greek Xiphos possesses a well-tempered and sharpened blade of 1095 high carbon steel. The grip of carved and polished hardwood is dual-pinned to the thick blade tang. The pommel is also wood and is capped on its end with a steel disc. The sword comes with a scabbard of wood.

This replica Xiphos is a practical sword purpose-built for those who wish to appreciate its time-tested design first-hand or the reenactor or collector who desires a battle-ready replica that is not overly heavy.

The blade is crafted from strong, quality steel paired with a robust hilt construction. In terms of handling this Xiphos is quite easy to wield and is an agile, responsive weapon. The ancient leaf blade design accentuates the force of cuts and chops, whilst the wide tip forces even shallow thrusts to become notably wide.

The weapon often identified with the Greek heroes of antiquity, the leaf-bladed design of the Xiphos stretches back well into the Bronze Age; when the transition to iron blades occurred the Greeks simply kept much of its original form. Though the weapon has a heroic pedigree it was most likely the secondary weapon for most Greek warriors - particularly the Hoplites whose primary weapon was the Dory spear. Should the spear be broken the Hoplite could draw his Xiphos and continue the fight. The Xiphos could also be used by the front ranks of a phalanx should the push-and-shove scrum of a phalanx vs phalanx fight clash too close for the spear to be useful for the ranks in the fore. In such close quarters the Xiphos could find its mark once its wielder found an opening in his opponents defense.

This short Xiphos is fitted with a sharpened blade of well-tempered 1095 high carbon steel; the grip of polished bone is pinned to the thick blade tang to create the grip. The pommel is likewise of bone and is finished with a pommel disc cap of steel. The sword is accompanied with a scabbard of wood.

This replica of the short-bladed Xiphos has a robust blade paired with strong construction; it is ideal for the cutting enthusiast who wishes to experience the time-tested ability of the ancient leaf-blade design for themselves. Such swords had a long history of use; their swollen leaf tips bring enhanced cutting and hacking ability; the wide tip causes even shallow thrusts to quickly widen into long, gaping entry wounds.

The Spartans were known to favor the use of a short-sword version of the Xiphos; though lesser in length than Xiphoi favored by other Greeks, the Spartans may have found the shorter blade more useful in very tight phalanx formations. In martial affairs the Spartans were ever-practical and it would be unwise to assume that their preferences were based upon anything less than battle-experience and the usefulness of such a weapon within the Spartan sphere of War.

The Spartans, like most Greeks used the Dory spear as their primary weapon for their hoplites within phalanxes. When dueling phalanxes become close and entangled the front rows of Spartans likely found it advantageous to temporarily discard their spears and to draw the short-bladed Xiphos. With so many men pressed closely together there was little room to maneuver in a pressed phalanx; perhaps an advantage went to the skilled man with a nimble, shorter sword that could easily navigate the scrum of shield and spear pole unentangled to find its mark within the foe. With a large, round shield to cover him, the Spartan warrior could fend off his opponents until the opportunity presented itself to press forward and strike.

Greek Xiphos Sword with Bronzed Finish
This Xiphos is crafted from high carbon steel with an antiqued bronze finish. It comes with a leather-bound wooden scabbard with steel throat and chape pieces that have an antiqued bronze finish. It has two hanging rings to allow it to be hung from a baldric.

With roots in the bronze age, the Greek Xiphos existed alongside the Kopis as the two sidearm swords of the Greek Hoplite warrior. Unlike the forward curving Kopis, the Xiphos was a straight, leaf-bladed short sword. These leaf bladed designs were popular in the bronze age and they continued into the iron age. The leaf blade on the Xiphos is very similar in design to the Celtic leaf-bladed swords of the same era found elsewhere in Europe. It is a design that puts more mass in the tip region, giving the sword greater chopping power, as well as the ability to make even a shallow thrust wound grievously wide.

The main weapon of the Greek Hoplite was undoubtedly his Dory spear, but should it be broken in combat or the melee get too close-in for the spear to be as useful the shorter Xiphos would be drawn from its baldric-hung scabbard to finish the fight. http://www.kultofathena.com/product.asp?item=AH4212N&name=Greek+Xiphos+Sword+with+Bronzed+Finish

Danish Bronze Age Sword $450
Crafted by New York bronzesmith Chris Levatino, this replica bronze sword is based on a Bronze Age Danish weapon which is now housed in the Copenhagen Museum of Natural History. Cast from bronze, it has false rivets of bronze on the guard and wooden spaces in the grip. These false rivets were a decorative feature on many Bronze Age swords, as they were an stylistic emulation of other bronze swords which had wood or horn grips riveted to the blade. The blade has come to us slightly sharpened, but should you desire a sharper, more even edge, then please select the option for our in-house sharpening service below.

The archeological record is littered with bronze weapons which are surprisingly abundant thanks to the anti-corrosive properties of bronze. The best preserved ones could be sharpened and used today, as was the ‘’relatively’’ recent case of an ancient bronze sword that was wielded by a combatant in the United Irishman Rebellion of 1789!

Unlike iron and steel, bronze weapons were solid cast from earthen molds. Being softer than iron and steel, bronze blades need a thick central ridge or spine to impart as much rigidity as possible and minimize blade warping. From this thick spine, the blade rapidly tapers to a thin and keen edge.

File 145942826542.jpg - (213.82KB , 1133x986 , CC bronze aga Danish sword reproduction 3.jpg )
Bronze weapons are deceptively sophisticated however - a good craftsman can ‘’harden’’ the blade edge whilst retaining the softer, unaltered core of the bronze, giving the blade properties similar to the ‘’differential hardening’’ that is most famously exhibited on traditionally made katanas. The katana, typically has a softer core and hardened edges to give the blade a shock absorbing core and a hard, sharp edge. A good bronzesmith can ‘’differentially harden’’ his blade by hammering its edges repeatedly and condensing the bronze material. This flattening makes the bronze edge dense, hard and gives it a more keen and surprisingly sharp edge. The unaltered, softer bronze core of the blade gives it shock absorbing properties. Bronze blades were rarely longer in length than what would typically be deemed ‘’short swords’’ - the longer a bronze blade is, the more easily it can be bent. Despite this shortcoming, a bent bronze sword can be returned to true without great difficulty.

Some more thoughts about bronze as a material for swords. It's of course nowhere near as hard or flexible as modern steel but it's quite underrated and has some very desirable properties.

For the study of archaeology, bronze is very useful because it lasts for thousands of years without significant corrosion. Iron swords on the other hand are often just lumps of rust after all that time.

I question the point of a tanto point on a survival knife. They don't have a curved edge so skinning is going to be more time consuming, and a drop or clip point will be better for poking small holes in stuff.

I would bet most people who do skinning use the one type of knife they were instructed with and seldom stray with different blades.

Skinning knives are typically small curved blades or having a small sharpened hook over the tip. Tantos more resemble scrapers.

That's strange, because both the satin and DLC DV-2s with wood handles are export knives. The Kizlyar that Spetsnaz actually plays around with and gets issued have leather handles instead of wood (it's still coated, however).

Voron "Raven" is based on the older version of Russian military issue Bayonets. It has a versatile long and very tough blade that makes the knife ideal for sticking prey, yet the blade features a very practical belly that lets the knife be used for meat preparations and other tasks also. Voron is still very popular with field military personal who prefer it over the general issue SKS bayonets. Reason being that Voron is longer, tougher, 100 times sharper and like all Kizlyars it keeps a great edge. http://kizlyarknifestore.com.au/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=35

  Kizlyar DV2 Mick Parker Reviews https://youtu.be/jASv-fy2k1A
DV-2 - “Dalnya-Vostorchny Spetsnaz”, an acronym for a special purpose unit within the Russian military, whose operational role mainly encompasses the form of a “mobility troop” type, being LRRP (long range reconnaissance patrol) and counter-insurgency operations. This model of knife was designed by the unit and was subsequently made to their specifications. Their requirement was that their knife should be of the extreme hard use type, able to be used for the majority of tasks associated with living off the land deep behind enemy lines or in a frozen Siberian wasteland.

The Wootz steel originated in South India and Sri Lanka. The crucible steel production process started in the sixth century BC. The steel was exported globally to the Romans, Egyptians, Chinese and Arabs by 500 BC. The steel was exported as cakes of steely iron that came to be known as "Wootz."
Over the centuries, the original methodology and the know how about Wootz steel was lost. However, the Mongol army used weapons made from Wootz steel and overtime developed their own techniques for making a steel very similar to Wootz, which they called Bulat. The word Bulat is used by the Russians for a steel which was later forged by Russian black smiths, and is believed to be quite similar to the original Wootz steel. In fact, Russian metallurgist Pavel Petrovich Anosov was able to reproduce ancient Wootz steel with almost all its properties and the steel he created was essentially identical to traditional Wootz. He documented four different methods of producing Wootz steel that exhibited traditional patterns.
The Olamic knives presented here are all forged using age old techniques to recreate the mystical Wootz steel. The hardness level of Wootz / Bulat steel is about 63-65 HRC. http://kizlyarknifestore.com.au/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=118_113_241

Their "Suppressor" knife is still one of the most gorgeous knives I have ever had the opportunity to hold. Too bad its a piece of shit for the price. I remember seeing a youtube video a while back of a guy testing it. And lightish/normalish use was rubbing the finish off of the blade.

A two-handed sword could span up to 6 ft. in length. It was initially a specialized weapon for the infantry, used for cutting or thrusting, to penetrate the enemy's front line. After the introduction of firearms to the battlefield by the end of the 1500s, the role of the two-handed sword was generally limited to the ceremonial use of bodyguards and civic militia. The maker's mark on the blade is similar to ones used by bladesmiths in Munich.
