This Qama / Kindjal has a double-edged blade of sharpened damascus steel; the blade is embellished with the vibrant, swirling designs of mixed steels in the layered damascus blade. These patterns were created when the smith worked two differing types of steel into a single billet before forging it together into a single, double-edged blade. The hilt is crafted by merging two carved and polished halves of wood with the thick blade tang with a pair of steel rivets topped with conical steel studs. The hilt of this Qama is slightly longer than other production Qama on the market, making it easier to grip in the hammer fashion. The sword is paired with a scabbard of sturdy, stitched leather with a belt loop and adjustable baldric strap.
An iconic weapon of the Caucasus region, the Qama / straight Kindjal was used by cultures as far-reaching as Georgia and Persia, as well as Russia and the Caucasus. Circassians, Cossacks and Persian tribesmen alike all wore the Qama as a weapon of personal self defense and many were highly embellished to reflect status. Being a weapon associated with Persia and the trade between Persia and India in steel and arms, many Kindjal and Qama had blades of wootz steel, the process of its creation created patterns of watered steel similar in appearance to damascus steel.
