Description[edit | edit source]
|“||It was prince Kutamun, naked but for a loin-cloth, his harness hacked away, his crested helmet dented, his limbs splashed with blood. With a terrible shout he hurled his broken hilt full into Conan's face, and leaping, seized the stallion's bridle.||„|

The favored weapon of Stygian royalty, the khopesh is traditionally cast in bronze and hilted in pure ivory. With the development of stronger metals, the Stygian smiths began using iron and steel during their creation, and diluting out the bronze cast which made them pleasing to the nobility.
Interestingly, this weapon has more in common with an axe than a sword and is best used for hacking and chopping rather than slicing and dicing.
