Shamshir Sword Description

The shamshir sword is another type of backsword originating in the Middle East. Originally, shamshir referred to a wide range of swords from various regions, all with their own style of the weapon. While early versions of the sword exist from the 9th century, the scimitar gained notoriety following the Mongol invasions starting in the 13th century. It was commonly used during the 14th-19th centuries by the Ottoman empire.

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.
