Whether you wish to use this sword for practice, or just as a decoration, it will make a very nice accurate wooden scimitar to have. More About Scimitars: This blade type originated in Southwest Asia and the Middle East. The curved blade was good for slashing, and the light weight made it a very powerful weapon from horseback. The weight of this sword makes it good for pursuing and exit strategies, yet the design helps it compete with larger, heavier swords. Many variations and sword adaptations were based on the scimitar, including the cutlass sword.
