Scimitar Sword Description

The Arabian scimitar is a backsword or sabre 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.  This sword has an eagle head pommel.

Blade Material

This scimitar sword is made from 1095 steel which accurately matches the very hard steel content of ancient rapier swords. Currently, 1095 steel is the highest carbon steel commonly used in swords. It has a carbon level of .95% which is one of the highest carbon levels for any type of steel. The most common high carbon swords are 1045 steel which only have .45% carbon content in the steel. 1095 steel is known for its ability to maintain an edge and is an incredibly hard steel. 1095 steel typically has a hardness of 56-58 HRC. While lacking flexibility, the steel excels at remaining sharp even through high impact collisions and can easily be resharpened.
