I really admire the warrior's sword.
Actually I've never seen a real Mongol sword before and then I figured out that it resembles its Arab counterpart.

Thank you.
Yeah, Arabians and Persians rooted to Nomadic lifestyle and Mongols are Nomads and somethings so similar in both side.

It's a bit complex - on the arabic side, they used more straight swords at first, but after the conquest (and islamification) of Iran, the Shamshir scimitar design got very popular around, and flowed in the 'House of Islam'... for the turkish and mongolian peoples, I suppose it's sometyhing they did themselves, for the advantages brought of a curved blade.

May be the Islamic symbol New moon's shape is found on the more curved blade of the Scimitar.

I heard this is something predating Islam, the crescent symbol, but possible
