During the Achaemenid Persian empire, employing foreign soldiers as mercenaries became commonplace. One of the “fringe” territories that became a strong asset to the Persian army was the Scythians. The Scythians were a nomadic tribe who were renowned for their ability to shoot arrows with deadly accuracy from horseback. 

Other than the bow and arrow which the Scythians were renowned for, they also carried a curved short-sword, known as an akinakes. We designed this knife after the akinakes with its curved blade and upturned drop point tip. The flared butt of the handle is also modified from the styling of the time. Made of 1095 and 15n20 steels.

Great Product & Service

I ordered my Scythian Damascus over the phone and the customer service representative was very nice, knowledgeable, so I placed an order. Package came on schedule and was exceptionally wrapped and packaged.
The blade is "sharp" just like their supposed to be and I'm very satisfied. The sheath fit a bit loose, imo. The belt loop looks a bit small for a wider leather belt, but I haven't put it on yet, so we will see. Otherwise, I most pleased with FS and plan to place another order in the near future.
Thank You!

Love this knife! Compact design, nice grip, feels comfortable in your hand--very sharp blade! As a side for the ladies--it fits in the smallest of bags. You won't be disappointed if you buy it!
