The original scimitar was called a shamshir, (which meant "lions tail") and had a deeply curved blade that was almost a half circle. Developed in Persia, this type of blade was effective for drawcuts, 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 drawcut as well as slash, and the point is quite useful in the "hooking" thrust often used. Made from high carbon steel by Windlass Steelcrafts®. Grip is wood, and the guard and scabbard furniture are steel. Complete with scabbard. A beautiful and chivalrous sword. Copied from the Hank Reinhardt collection.
