    <h2>what is a scimitar</h2><p> The scimitar is the <strong>typical Arab sword</strong> . There are many types of scimitars since each Middle Eastern people developed their model and over time combat tactics evolved, adapting the swords to the type of battle that the army was going to face.</p><h2> Scimitar Characteristics</h2><p> The scimitar is basically a broad-bladed saber. The pommel can be round or flat, the hilt roped, wired or sometimes made of wood, and the guard is usually curved towards the blade. The base of the blade is usually less wide than the end and the tip narrows and is very sharp. One edge of the blade is completely sharp and so is the end of its opposite. There are also scimitars that have a single edge or that are two-handed.</p><p> This sword can be of various dimensions, depending on its use. Mounted warriors used to use a longer scimitar with a smaller guard. Those who were on the battlefield in close combat carried shorter scimitars with a larger guard to protect themselves from blows. The scimitar is clearly a slashing weapon, perfect for hitting opponents' legs. Thrust or stabbing attacks were very rare as it was difficult to extract the sword from the opponent's body once struck.</p><p> The parts of the scimitar are usually made of metal, especially the guard, which had to withstand the blows of the opponent.</p><h2> Scimitars for celebrations</h2><p> Over time, the scimitar has become a belt-worn sword, enriched with details on the guard and blade. The guards are carved with floral details and enriched with precious stones. The leaves bear arabesque motifs.</p><p> Lately it is not uncommon to find these swords at weddings, for cutting the cake. In the Spanish tradition, the wedding cake is usually cut with classic swords such as the Tizona and the Colada, and over time other types of swords have been introduced, such as the scimitar. They are usually engraved with the names of the bride and groom and the handle is usually carved with theme drawings. The blade is not usually sharp, although sometimes the edge can be marked.</p><h2> scimitar in history</h2><p> As we already mentioned, the scimitar has been the sword of the Arab warriors. Its large blade had a monstrous edge and its cutting capacity was brutal. The historians say that this type of sword with a curved blade began to be used many years before the birth of Christ, but we can say for sure that it was used by the Persian and Indian peoples. This sword was the protagonist especially in the fights between the Templars and the Saracens.</p><p> In modern times, scimitars are the symbol of the Arab peoples, where they are still used in important ceremonies. Some of them are luxury pieces for collectors, among them we find those that are made by hand in Toledo.</p><blockquote><p> On our website you can find a good variety of scimitars of various models. <strong>If you need help or just advice, we are at your disposal!</strong></p></blockquote>
  • kabylas


    <p>The kabila sword is a saber of Arab origin used by North African peoples in their wars.</p><h2> Characteristics of Kabilas swords</h2><p> Kabilas swords are the result of a mixture of the most important and symbolic Arab swords: the scimitar and the genet.</p><h3> From the scimitar take the blade</h3><p> a curved and long blade, perfect for hitting while cutting. The blade of kabilas are single-edged and usually measure about 70-80 cm.</p><h3> From the genet, take the part of the handle, the guard and the pommel</h3><p> These pieces have the typical shape of Arab swords. The pommel is usually flat or round, the hilt is one-handed and the guard is usually very narrow, flat and falls on the edges of the blade. These three parts present the typical floral and arabesque decorations. Sometime they can present some text in Arabic.</p><h2> Kabila-like swords</h2><p> There are some swords, of Arab origin that are very similar to the kabila sword, among them:</p><h3> Flissa: similar sword but has a straight blade and does not usually have a guard.</h3><h3> Gumia: very similar sword but it is usually smaller and the blade is usually more curved.</h3><h3> Scimitar: The blade of some scimitars can resemble the blade of kabilas.</h3><h3> Jineta: the handle, the pommel and the guard are usually the same or similar to the kabila.</h3><h2> Who used the kabila sword?</h2><p> The kabila sword was born as a sword for the Arab knights. The long, curved blades used to have very good cutting ability and were able to hit the opponent without risking getting the blade stuck. Occasionally, this sword could also be used by infantry.</p><p> The kabila is an original and very rare sword. It cannot be missing in a collection of swords, especially if it is made in Toledo, like the one we sell. Our kabila is made in Toledo respecting production standards and passing a quality control, analyzing all the particulars, which gives it the "Made in Toledo" seal.</p><blockquote><p> If you need more information we remain at your disposal.</p></blockquote>

    <p>The jineta sword is a sword of Nasrid origin that was introduced in the Iberian Peninsula during the Arab invasion. It is one of the best known swords of Muslim origin with the scimitar, the kabila and the cutlass.</p><h2> Characteristics of the geneta sword</h2><p> The jineta sword is presented as a single-edged sword with a curved blade and medium-small dimensions (50-60 cm). The guard is very narrow and falls towards the blade, the hilt is one-handed and the pommel is usually round. These parts are engraved with floral and arabesque motifs and may sometimes present texts in Arabic letters. The most famous jineta sword is that of Boabdil, who was the last king of Granada. After the reconquest, several of the same or similar swords began to be produced in the famous town of Toledo in Spain.</p><h2> Jineta-like swords</h2><p> There are some swords, of Arab origin that are very similar to the genet sword, among them:</p><h3> flissa</h3><p> similar sword but it has a straight blade and does not usually have a guard.</p><h3> gummie</h3><p> Very similar sword but it is usually smaller and the blade is usually more curved.</p><h3> Scimitar</h3><p> the blade of some scimitars may resemble the blade of genets.</p><h3> kabyla</h3><p> perhaps the most similar sword to the genet in its entirety.</p><p> There are very few replicas of the jineta sword and we have the honor of selling a replica produced by the Marto de Toledo house. This sword is produced entirely in Toledo, respecting manufacturing standards.</p><blockquote><p> The sword is delivered with the "Made in Toledo" certificate.

  • cutlasses


    <p>The cutlass is a saber of Iberian-Hispanic origin with a wide and curved blade. Its name comes from the word "al-janyar" which in Hispanic Arabic means dagger. Its origins are varied since it resembles the typical pirate sabers and European falchions.</p><h2><span class="fa fa-chevron-circle-right"></span> Characteristics of the cutlass</h2><p> The cutlass is presented as a saber with a curved, wide and single-edged blade. It is a light sword that can be made in various sizes: short cutlasses (approximately 70 cm) and long cutlasses (approximately 100 cm). All the parts of these sabers are usually made of metal (pommel, hilt, guard, hawks and hand guards), but depending on the model, the hilt can be made of leather.</p><p> The cutlass may have handguards that serve to protect the fingers and in the present case, hawks, the protection would extend to the entire hand. Its curved blade has a very sharp edge and can have a constant width from the base to the tip or it can widen in the last third of the blade. In Arab cutlasses, the part of the handle, like the two sides of the blade, usually have the typical Arab-style floral engravings. European cutlasses are simpler in style and may resemble boarding sabers.</p><h2><span class="fa fa-chevron-circle-right"></span> Origin of the Cutlass</h2><p> According to the knowledge we have, the cutlass is a saber of Arab and Hispanic origin, born in the medieval period and exported to Italy. The Italian seafaring republics used it as a boarding saber or sailor's saber. These ship voyages of the time not only brought spices and new materials from the new worlds, but also brought new methods of production of armaments.</p><p> Many experts consider it to be a saber that has encompassed the best features of different Arab and Turkish weapons, which is why there are many different styles of cutlass. The cutlass is said to be the predecessor of these famous sabers:</p><ul><li> german messer</li><li> english falchion</li><li> french fauchar</li><li> Italian boarding saber</li><li> persian shamshir</li><li> hispanic falcon</li><li> chinese dao</li></ul><p> The cutlass is presented as a very attractive sword due to its particular engravings and its shape. We must not forget that it has been one of the most lethal weapons in the Muslim conquest of the Iberian Peninsula. It is surely a collector's item and that is why we offer you some models that you can find in our catalogue. <strong>If you need any advice, feel free to contact us.</strong></p>
