This version of the Baladay scimitar has a guard and pommel of mirror-polished steel instead of brass. The blade is of stainless steel and the grip is darkened wood. The sword will balance edge up for belly dancing and we test each one before shipping. The sword comes with a buttoned scabbard of stitched leather.
It is common for the item to have scratches on the mirror-polished hilt components. A moderate effort with a scuffing pad will remove them and will also give these components a brushed-steel finish. A larger amount of effort with progressively fine pads and fine grit sandpapers can bring these components back into a mirror-polish.
