Introduction: The Wooden Scimitar (Arab Sword)

This is the wooden scimitar (sword used by Arabs) that i've been working on in my free time.Please enjoy learning how to build it.One more thing,I was working on it already when I thought of making it into a n Instructables.You don't have to rate if you don't want to.This is my first Instructables.

Step 1: What You Need

You don't need much, just a hobbby/pocket knife and a sharpener (takes a while) I used a roof tile as mine. You always need something harder then the knife to sharpen it. Picture 2 shows how to sharpen your knife.

Step 2: Cutting

De-bark your sword.It's more comfortable.Pic 2 (handle) looks rough but feels like silk :P . Try sanding it down. I used my knife on edge (vertical) and rubbed.

Step 3: Optional

I sharpened the end of my handle to use as a weapon. You could try it too. Little knob (on handle) is good finger gaurd if fighting :P .

Step 4: Ending Product

This is what it should look like :P .

why not turn it in to a bow?

That's just a stick!!!!

 so it's a stick? insult to arabs man

yea that is a STICK!!!!!!!!!!!!! i can carve a scimitar better than that, in less time probably

Nice for a start, but bring the size down a bit more sand it a little further. Right now that thing looks way too unwieldy, I would say cut the top off so it doesn't go any farther back than the hilt of the sword. After that, carve it into whatever shape you like, and post the results!

hey good instuctables but it look like just a plain old stick to me

Thanks for the advice but my parents already got rid of it becase my Baby Brother kept wacking people with it =/<br/>
