Persian Scimitar

The original scimitar was called a shamshir, which meant "lion's tail", and had a deeply curved blade that was almost a half circle. Developed in Persia, this type of blade was effective for draw cuts, but other than that, of limited utility. This caused the blade to shift its shape into a more useful version, which we have chosen to copy. Blade is quite effective, being able to draw cut as well as slash, and the point is quite useful in the "hooking" thrust often used. Made from high carbon steel by Windlass Steelcrafts, this beautiful and romantic sword has a wood grip and the guard and scabbard furniture are steel. Complete with scabbard. Circa 1700
