Help

This Turkish Kilij has a blade that has been crafted from Damascus steel. The blade has engraved decorate design on both sides in its center and at the beginning of its false edge. It has a crossguard of brass and the tang of the sword has been riveted into a grip of wood with brass rivets. It has a companion scabbard of carved wood.

The flared ‘’Yelman’’ tip of a Kilij increases its mass at its main slashing point, giving it greater power in the stroke as the extra steel aids to drive the blade through its target. It has a thick T-shaped spine that gives the blade extra strength without the need to make the entirety of the blade thick. The Kilij seems to date from the 13th century and it is a variation of the Turko-Mongol style sabers. While a sword such as this excels in the slash and cut, its substantial curved profile can be utilized by a skilled user to deliver a hooked thrust from an angle that could catch a lesser swordsman off-guard.
