Eagle Scimitar: A Testament to Arabian Craftsmanship
Unearth the pages of ancient Middle Eastern chronicles with our meticulously crafted Eagle Scimitar. Rooted deeply in the vast expanses of the Middle East, the scimitar's lineage traces back to the Ottoman era, with its legacy beginning as early as the 9th century.
The term "scimitar" is steeped in linguistic history and intrigue. While its origin remains debated, its association with the Arabic term 'saif' and the Greek 'xiphos' suggests a long-standing martial heritage. The iconic Persian sword, the 'shamshir', which rose to prominence in the 12th century and became a staple by the 16th century, shares its DNA with our scimitar. Our design pays homage to this legacy with an intricately detailed eagle head pommel, symbolizing strength, vision, and freedom.
Our scimitar boasts a blade forged from 1095 steel, a material known to echo the hardened steel content of venerable rapier swords. As one of the highest carbon-content steels available today, it surpasses the common 1045 steel's .45% carbon content with a whopping .95%. This steel is celebrated for its unparalleled edge retention, achieving a hardness of 56-58 HRC. Though it trades off flexibility, it compensates with a razor-sharp edge that stands firm against high-impact clashes and can be honed to perfection with ease.
