GREECE - MAY 02:  Costas Menegakis, a 42-year-old Greek-Canadian blacksmith who specializes in horseshoes, makes a new Spartan sword in his forge in Sparta, Greece, Wednesday, May 2, 2007. Greek merchants from Athens to Thermopylae are concerned about a scarcity of spears and swords as they prepare for summer visitors obsessed with the hit film "300," the gory story of the 480 B.C. clash between Spartan King Leonidas and his archenemy King Xerxes of Persia.
