Acinaces Sword Description

The acinaces sword, or Scythian sword, or is a type of dagger or short sword found in the first millennium BCE in the eastern Mediterranean region. It was originally used by the Medes, Scythians, Persians and Caspii, and was eventually a primary weapon used by the Greeks. The acinaces, of Scythian origin, was made famous by the Persians, and rapidly spread throughout the ancient world. The Romans believed that this weapon originated with the Medes but archeological evidence suggests it originated as a Scythian weapon. The acinaces is started between 14-18 inches in length but increased in size under the Persian development to upward of 26”. It has a double edge with the hilt resembling a bollock dagger. The pommel of the Scythian sword may be split or of the "antenna" type. This pommel is the most traditional split style. The sword was suspended from a belt on the wearer's right side.

Blade Material

This Scythian sword is made from Pattern welded Damascus steel.  Pattern welded Damascus steel scimitar is a hard heat treated, folded carbon steel.  There are 11 pieces of steel, folded five times, making 352 layers.  The steel is the perfect combination of hardness and durability with a Rockwell hardness rating between 55 and 56 HRC.  High carbon Damascus steel must contain layers of high carbon steel.  The high carbon steel we use is 1095 steel which is the highest content carbon steel used in swords.  The combination of the steel layers creates a sword that is strong enough to hold a powerful edge while having the strength and flexibility to withstand powerful collisions.  This makes the perfect steel for swords.  The handle is wood with Damascus steel bolsters.  It comes with a leather sheath.

Good sword

Good solid sword

Joseph Spear
A massive short-sword!

At 25 inches It is still one of the heaviest in my collection. It’s well made, looks good, and is a reproduction of a historic Persian sword. I’m very pleased with the sword and Battling Blades' service.
