The Feltwell Spatha has a blade forged from EN45 high carbon steel; the hilt is crafted from carved wood. The sword has a companion scabbard of wood overlaid in red leather and fitted with a wooden suspension loop. The chape and locket are steel. The sword is a replica of a 5th Century Spatha found beneath the floor tiles of a Romano British villa - it was likely hidden, though its owner never returned. The blade has a hexagonal cross section common to Spatha of the period and its scabbard fittings were originally of tinned brass.

The Feltwell Spatha was unlikely to have been made in Britain and instead probably came from the continent and was of Roman origin, though very similar swords could be found in the hands of the Germanic tribesmen outside the boundaries of the Western Roman Empire. This Spatha is suitable as a sword that could be representative of many Spatha in the late 4th to 5th century.
