Scimitar Sword/ Sabre Sword- High Carbon Damascus Steel Sword- 19"- Saber Sword

A scimitar sword is a sabre or backsword with a curved blade, originating in the Middle East. The curved sword or “scimitar” was common throughout the Middle East. The sabre, also spelled saber, is a backsword with a curved blade from the light cavalry of the Early Modern and Napoleonic periods. Originally associated with the Central-Eastern European cavalry such as the Hussars, the sabre became widespread in Western Europe during the Thirty Years’ War via the Croat light cavalry. Lighter sabre’s also became popular with infantry divisions of the late 17th century. In the 19th century, models less curvature in the blades became common and were also used by heavy cavalry. The military sabre was used as a dueling weapon in academic fencing in the 19th century. This led to the discipline of modern sabre fencing (introduced in the 1896 Summer Olympics) loosely based on the characteristics of the historical weapon in that it allows for cuts as well as thrusts. Pattern welded Damascus steel 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. The handle is bone and horn with Damascus steel bolsters.
