Circa 1700

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. Grip is wood, and the guard and scabbard furniture are steel. Complete with scabbard. A beautiful and romantic sword. Copied from the Hank Reinhardt collection. Can be sharpened for additional fee.
  • Overall: 36"
  • Blade: 30-1⁄2" long, 1-1⁄8" wide, 3⁄16" thick
  • Wt: 1 lb/8 oz

1. Judge Joe on 12/27/2008, said:

An absolutely outstanding weapon; great balance for the type and frightenly quick; this scimitar is dangerous when sharpened and it can deliver ferocious draw cuts. It is one of your absolutely best offerings. The grip and quillions appear to be closely derived from a weapon captured by Capt.Decatur (USN)in the Tripoli pirate suppressions. If I'm not mistaken, he carried the weapon regularly for the rest of his Naval career. Joe Brown.
