The scimitar, from the Persian word shamshir, meaning lions tail or claw, is the Arabian/Moorish version of the cutlass sword. With its short, curved, single-edged blade, the Arabic Scimitar by Marto is the very picture of an ideal scimitar. This this scimitar is a reproduction of a sword that can be found in the Museo del Ejercito in Madrid, Spain. Its main characteristics are the cross-guard, which rises to the handle on one side and descends to the blade on the other side, and the blade, which is at its broadest near the point. This wonderfully stylized scimitar is a visually appealing piece that would fit as well in battle as it would in ceremony and decor. The stainless steel blade is wickedly curved, and measures approximately 4.5 inches at its widest, near the point, and the hilt is beautifully detailed and decorated.
