Shamshir, Persian Saber

Cold Steel®'s version of this historic saber replicates the original as closely as possible. Its expertly heat-treated 1055 high carbon steel blade has a deep curve and a narrow cross section, combined with a keen edge and a very sharp point. It's complemented by a brass crossbar hilt and a faux buffalo horn handle that terminates in a distinctive bulbous pommel. The pommel is slightly downturned to keep the wielder's grip as secure as possible when making hard cutting strokes. More information...

Shamshir, Persian Saber

The Shamshir originated in Persia and spread throughout the former Ottoman Empire and beyond into India and even the Philippines. Its strongly curved blade was enduringly popular.

  • Overall length: approx. 92.1cm
  • Blade length: approx. 77.5cm

  • Weight: approx. 802 g
  • Incl. leather/wood scabbard with brass fittings

The beautiful hand-made scabbard is made of thick black leather (so it won't dull the blade) and reinforced by a brass throat and chape. It comes complete with dual suspension rings for ease of carry or display.

1055 High Carbon Steel

The carbon content and lean alloy of this shallow hardening steel make this a very sturdy material that avoids a lot of the brittleness commonly associated with higher carbon materials. Particularly suited to blades requiring impact resistance, it's often seen in large fixed blades and swords.
