Step into the rich historical tapestry of the Middle East with our Arabian Scimitar Sword, a weapon characterized by its unique curved blade. Hailing from the Middle East, the scimitar has been a symbol of power and prestige since at least the Ottoman period, with its origins tracing back to the 9th century.
The term 'scimitar' sparks debate among historians. It likely shares roots with the Arabic term 'saif' and the Greek word 'xiphos', referring to the straight, double-edged sword of ancient Greece. The Persian 'shamshir', a similar weapon that emerged in the 12th century, became widespread in Persia by the early 16th century.
Blade of Elegance and Strength
Our Scimitar sword showcases the skillful artistry of Pattern welded Damascus steel. The hard heat-treated, folded carbon steel blade consists of 11 pieces of steel, folded five times, culminating in 352 layers. With a Rockwell hardness rating between 55 and 56 HRC, the steel represents a harmonious blend of hardness and durability.
The high carbon Damascus steel incorporates layers of high carbon steel, specifically the 1095 steel, known for its unrivaled carbon content. The layered steel results in a blade powerful enough to sustain a sharp edge, and sturdy and flexible enough to endure intense clashes.
Refined Handle and Sheath
The handle, made from bone and adorned with Damascus steel bolsters, adds a touch of rustic elegance. The sword is accompanied by a leather sheath, providing protection and convenience.
