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.

"good looking sword that is well made. I have average size hands and it fits perfectly in them. Someone with larger hands may find the handle to small though." - Jim (5/5)
"Very nice sword. The scabbard was a little tight, but it will loosen up over time." - Carl (5/5)
"It is my first REAL sword. Looks and handles nice. No complains about finishing/polishing" - Ivan (4/5)
