Seen in the 2nd Century B.C. - The Harp Sword was possibly imagined from Greek Tradesmen who ventured to Ancient Egyptian Ports – noting the deadly Kopesh Sword. Redesigning the sword to The Harp, the blade was around 3 feet long. It featured a much straighter blade than The Kopesh. The handle/grip was made of wood or bone and was around 6 to 8 inches long. The Harpe featured no hand guard for wrist protection. They were single-edged (with some also having a back sharpened portion).
