Time Period: Unknown
Location: Assyria
Common Construction: Wood Hilt, Iron Blade
The sappara resembles the Egyptian khopesh except it is only sharpened on the convex side. The sappara may have been used against the Egyptians and inspired them to adopt a version of the weapon as their own. It was definitely used between 1500 and 1200 BC, but its exact origins are not known.

The Assyrians were one of the first cultures to use iron weapons, which gave them a massive advantage in bronze age warfare. They employed a large and highly disciplined army, and the sappara appears to be their primary infantry sword.
