I have been told that this is not really a hoplite sword, but a "something" Windless made up. Is this accurate?
That aside, is this sword worth having? Will it survive as a whacker? Opinions?

The first casualty of battle is bravado, the second is macho.

It definitely does not resemble anything historical, sorry! Couldn't tell you about its workmaship beyond that.

Khaire,

You have heard correctly. It does not at all resemble any historical finds. I've heard it's a fair cutting sword, though. No experience with it, myself, only relaying what I've gathered online.
