Arabian Scimitar Sword Description

The scimitar sword is a backsword or saber with a curved blade, originating in the Middle East.  The scimitar was widespread throughout the Middle East from at least the Ottoman period, with early examples dating to the 9th century.  There is debate on the origins of the word scimitar.  The Arabic term saif is likely to be derived from the same source as Greek xiphos (the straight, double-edged sword of Greek antiquity).  The Persian sword now called shamshir appeared in the 12th century and was popularized in Persia by the early 16th century.

Blade Material

The scimitar 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 bone and horn with Damascus steel bolsters.  It comes with a leather sheath.

Good blade

Impressive blade. Worth the money.
Would buy again. Thanks battleblades!

Super Sweet!

This scimitar blade has the great look of old world hand crafting. They have given it a hammered and aged look on a large area of the blade. On the grind, blood groove and the edge you see the beautiful Damascus pattern and all together give this sword a real Medieval look. The grip is a cable wrap over (I assume) wood. It gives the hand a great gripping surface and allows excellent control of the sword.
You will not be unhappy with this sword purchase and I will be returning here for more blades.
I would also like to thank Brian for all of his help.

Super Nice Scimitar

Such a nice sword. I am really surprised how nice it actually is.


Third purchase and great as always! The handle isn't really rope as much as it is handle material. I don't really know how to describe it but it is perfect for a sword handle. That definitely held me back from purchasing for a while. You guys might want to change the description in the handle material because it is really good.

Incredible Sword

Super heavy and durable. I am very impressed!
