Introducing the one handed Sparta/Falcata hybrid 15" knife with brass cross guard! This long yet well balanced blade is borderline machete/sword with a long reach for bushcraft brush clearing. Impress with this long cutting blade inspired by the Falcata & Sparta blades from Rome. Truly a unique piece exclusively handmade in Thailand.
We have a 3-6 week wait time at the point of purchase on this blade. Purchasing this made to order blade starts the custom creation process, as no 2 blades will be identical. Each blade is made new after point of purchase exactly for the customer, always in small batches. Purchase with confidence that we will work diligently bringing you an absolute beast of a blade.
Our website is 100% verified through Shopify Buyer Protection and all transaction and customer info is securely encrypted with the latest technology.
All our products are handmade and one of a kind. As such, you may receive a similar but not identical item from us, if our inventory on the listed product is low. As such, the received product may not be 100% identical to the listing, but is 100% unique and crafted just for you. Please allow variations in wood material, steel finish and slight variances in listed specifications.
OUR REFUND POLICY
We gladly accept refunds within 24-48 hours after purchase. A little buyer's remorse is ok! Once 48 hours have passed from the point of purchase, your money has been securely transferred and we will initiate the custom order. At this point, there will be no refunds granted on handmade custom orders, or any item that has already been shipped.
Once 48 hours have passed, we will start the handmade process of creating your lifetime blade. This includes purchasing domestic & imported materials, paying labour costs from our skilled blacksmiths & craftsmen and completing your item according to our current queue of placed orders.
Once the handmade process has begun, we cannot offer a refund, as your money will be put towards the creation of your custom handmade item.
As an aside, we have had a few orders where a client has agreed to a 3-6 month manufacturing time, only to back out in the final hour. This leaves us out of pocket and our talented workers not adequately compensated. As such, we have a strict No Refund Policy after 48 hours from point of purchase.
OUR RETURN POLICY
Due to the custom nature of our products, we do not accept returns of any kind. Please purchase with confidence, that you will receive a lifetime product, handmade specifically for your order

Shipping costs are kindly asked to be covered by the client.
Chipped blade edges and dull knives can be returned for a re-sharpen/re-profile at a nominal cost to cover labour expenses.

Current Queue Times & Backlog
Depending on the item, maker and current wait time, all items are subject to varying queue times. We aim to finish all custom orders within 2-6 weeks. We do experience the occasional delay from 1-6 months, depending on the custom order. In most extreme cases, a handful of orders have taken 6 months - 1 year to complete, pending postal services and delays from our makers.
Please check in with us if you are on a time constraint (purchasing as a gift) or if you need your item within a certain time frame. We are open for communication, and will try our best to communicate all wait times on any of our items.
Purchasing from Siam Blades is entering a contract with us that we are obliged to fulfill. We are working with many various Thai craftsmen that we have trusted over the years, as well as completing the work ourselves. We have always fulfilled every order that is commissioned by us, but our current backlog is subject to time of year, popularity of maker & current queue times. Some makers aren't as busy as others, while other makers are busy but have a reputable team in place to complete orders in a timely fashion. We strive to complete all orders in a timely fashion, pending life situations, weather and conditions out of our control (import of materials being delayed, postal service delays, national holidays, extreme weather, rain/heat).
We are a family run business, and we work with local rural maker's throughout Thailand to create sustainable jobs and economy for local villages. We strive to honour your purchase by completing it in a timely fashion, or letting you know when to realistically expect receiving your order.
As a family run business, we believe in providing exceptional customer service! We just had 2 wonderful babies, so please bare with us, as we handle our email & social media channels in house, usually with a baby in one hand and laptop or work order in the other.
