This Turkish Kilij has a blade of damascus steel; it has been embellished with gold koftgari-technique inlay on both sides of the blade. The intricate patterning of the damascus, which looks akin to elaborate wood-burl grain or rippling water, was created by the melding and folding of several different steels into the single billet. This mixed-steel billet was then hammered into form by the smith.

The guard is of hammered brass and the grip is carved and polished wood; the tang of the blade has been riveted to the grip. The sword comes with a carved and fitted wooden scabbard.

The Kilij is a sword designed to cut and slash with ferocious effectiveness - the sharp curve of the blade lends itself naturally to deep slashes and its widened tip region ensures that it powers through the strike with force. The blade is formed into a complex T-shape cross section; a form that brings strength to the spine, yet abruptly tapers to the thinner blade body to ensure that the blade is not too thick and to give the body of the blade a long and uninterrupted slope to the edge. This thin cross section of the body and edge minimizes drag on the blade as it passes through the target.
