The blade of this darkened Klatchian steel sword is deeply curved and tapers continuously down to a viciously sharp point. The hilt is shaped like a snake with emeralds set deeply into the eye sockets. The gently undulating handle is shaped to fit perfectly into the curve of a hand.
The shamshir is about three and a half feet long and four inches wide. It is made of klatchian steel and could be used as a weapon of type sword.
