Scythian/Persian akinakes?
So basically I am going to reenact an Achaemenid Persian infantryman, which means I require the typical Iranian short sword (long dagger?), akinakes, for the impression as my side-arm. The question is, is it possible to buy these? Barring that, what sword/dagger could I purchase, that I could modify to look (and handle) like an akinakes?
Did you see this thread over at SFI:
Hmm, it looks a tad short... But something like that could do unless I can find a better alternative.
Neil Burridge does excellent work. See if he's got something you like or contact him for possible variations?
