Immerse yourself in the grandeur of Middle Eastern history with our Arabian Scimitar Sword, a timeless weapon distinguished by its signature curved blade. The scimitar, synonymous with power and honor, has dominated the Middle Eastern landscape since the Ottoman era, boasting roots that extend as far back as the 9th century.
The etymology of 'scimitar' ignites scholarly debates. Its lineage is possibly intertwined with the Arabic 'saif' and the Greek 'xiphos', the formidable straight, double-edged sword of ancient Greece. The Persian 'shamshir', a weapon of similar design that surfaced in the 12th century, gained widespread acceptance in Persia by the early 16th century.
Exquisite Blade of Resilience and Power
Our Scimitar sword is a tribute to the traditional craftsmanship of Pattern welded Damascus steel. The robust, heat-treated, folded carbon steel blade is meticulously crafted from 11 pieces of steel, folded five times to form an impressive 352-layered structure. Achieving a Rockwell hardness rating between 55 and 56 HRC, the steel masterfully balances between hardness and durability.
The high carbon Damascus steel integrates layers of high carbon steel, specifically 1095 steel, revered for its supreme carbon content. The resulting layered steel forms a blade that is potent enough to maintain a razor-sharp edge, while possessing the strength and flexibility to withstand powerful impacts.
Elegant Handle and Sheath
The sword's handle, expertly carved from bone and accentuated with Damascus steel bolsters, exudes a sophisticated rustic charm. Each sword is paired with a protective leather sheath, ensuring both safety and convenience.
