A modern version of the Spartan xiphos short sword, which you'll sometimes (incorrectly) see called a "lakonia", a mistake made by a modern manufacturer and repeated across less-than-scholarly reproduction sword sites. This new version features a grip of no-slip hard rubber scales riveted over a full profile tang. The high carbon steel blade comes seriously sharp straight from the factory, and the heavy leather sheath is included. Makes a handy machete, survival knife, camp blade, or a fine accoutrement for dining in hell.
