The Shamshir originated in Persia and spread throughout the formerOttoman Empire and beyond into India and even the Philippines. Itsstrongly curved blade was enduringly popular and absolutely ideal fordelivering a devastating cutting stroke. And, contrary to popularbelief, it was very effective at delivering rising, descending andhooking style thrusts! Typically, the curved Shamshir blade had a narrowcross section and a sharp point. It had a simple brass or steelcrossbar hilt and an equally straightforward handle made from wood oranimal horn that terminated in a distinctively bulbous pommel. Thispommel was offset slightly to help the hand resist centrifugal forcewhen making a hard cutting stroke. Our version of this historic saberreplicates the original as closely as possible. The only modificationswere to substitute a modern high carbon steel for the blade and to useblack faux buffalo horn for the handle. Even the scabbard is a closecopy of the original. It’s made of thick, black leather (so it won’tdull the blade) and reinforced by a brass throat and chape, and comescomplete with dual suspension rings.
