The term Orient includes the countries of the Near, Middle and Far East. These are the Asian states and states of North Africa. In our e-shop you will find many different products inspired by things which were used by people in ancient times in these regions. We offer Persian or Arab sabres, Turkish helmets, Persian armour, and costumes for belly dancers, etc. Let yourself inspire by the old times of oriental countries.
When you say "Orient", you will probably imagine warm starry nights, a tempting smell of spices, rice dishes, women veiled in scarves, belly dancers, tea ceremonies, tropical fruits, opium smoking, beautifully woven carpets or majestic mosques. Women do not have a simple life in these countries, but we are still fascinated by the Orient. We are enchanted by spiritual thinking of people from the Near, Middle and Far East. We are interested in Buddhism, Zen, Shinto, yoga, shiatsu massage, acupuncture, acupressure, reiki and tai-chi.
The Near East includes the Arabian Peninsula and surrounding states of south-western Asia and north-eastern Africa. The Middle East is the general term for closer indeterminate states of South Asia. Far East includes the countries of Eastern and South-eastern Asia. As the ancient Near East we called ancient civilization from the 4th millennium BC to the 7th century AD: Palestine, Syria, Phoenicia, Asia Minor, Mesopotamia, the Iranian Highlands, ancient Egypt and Arabia.
Arabia is an Asian country, which takes a substantial part of the Arabian Peninsula. The Islamic religion dominates there. It was founded by Muhammad in the 7th century right in Arabia. Every Muslim should go on the pilgrimage to Mecca at least once in his/her life. Mecca is also part of Arabia. The Arabs devote a big attention to music, dance and poetry in their culture. Arab men wear long clothing and a headgear - kufiya. Women are shrouded in hijab and niqab.
The daggers are approximately made as follows. The basic shape of the blade is made by a laser CNC machine. It is burned from spring steel. The semi-finished blade follows then in the groove cutter, where the cutting edge and the groove are milled. The blade is then oil-quenched and tempered to the desired hardness. Then the guard and pommel is attached to the blade tang. The tang is usually peened at the end (behind the pommel) and the cross-guard hard soldered with brass. Hardwood plates are placed under the handle wrapping from genuine cowhide so that the handle is sufficiently robust for a safe grasp. The steels surfaces obtain the desired finish in the end - with a wire brush or with a felt disc with polishing paste.
