This reproduction of the Greco-Roman Short Sword, Parazonium, has an unsharpened blade forged out of high carbon steel and, its hilt featuring a pommel in the form of an eagle's head is carved from genuine animal bone.

The parazonium was actually an early Roman dagger, or at times a short sword, which had its origin in ancient Greece. It was predominantly carried by the high-ranking officers of the Roman legions as an auxiliary weapon to their sword (gladius). It is a precursor of the pugio.
Its tapering, leaf-shaped blade is a typical feature.
