The khopesh evolved from the epsilon or similar crescent shaped axes that were used in warfare, which were initially working tools. The khopesh went out of use around 1300BCE. Various pharaohs are depicted with a khopesh, and some have been found in royal graves, such as the two examples found with Tutankhamun.
Our khopesh is decorated with typical Egyptian snakes patterns.
