Watch the Yatagan review first, if you haven't yet: https://youtu.be/vX_8RWBkVQQ Not my words, but apparently many people consider the Ottoman kilij to be the most powerful cutter. And a sword supposedly favored by Vlad ČšepeČ™ AKA Vlad the Impaler, the intimidating historical figure that inspired good old Dracula. Be that as it may, this is a budget sword by the standards of the functional sword reproduction market. Will it hold up to my tests? Let's find out! *** Specifications *** Overall length: 92 cm (36'') Blade length: 75 cm (29-1/2'') Blade thickness: 3.5-4mm (1/8''- 3/16'') Weight: 1.1 kg (2 lbs 7 oz) Material: 1060 high carbon steel Hilt construction: Peened handle scales *** Pros / Cons *** + Affordable + Cuts very well + Comfortable grip + Strong, durable blade - Simplified hilt with no details - Blunt yelmen (false edge) *** Where to find it *** [Update: I was told that their original site, swordbuy.com was hacked, so they moved to swordbuy.co. I've reached out to Swordbuy on Etsy and asked them to confirm this is real, which they did. Still worth pointing out because that incident is odd, and I can't be 100% certain that there is nothing fishy going on.] https://www.swordbuy.co/turkish-kilij-sword/ Tatami mats: https://www.kultofathena.com/product/tameshigiri-tatami-cutting-mat-36/?koa=259 *** Sources / picture credits *** https://www.metmuseum.org/art/collection/search/31171 https://www.metmuseum.org/art/collection/search/31300 https://www.metmuseum.org/art/collection/search/32184 https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Sabel,_Turkiskt-persiskt_kulturomr%C3%A5de_-_Livrustkammaren_-_43589.tif https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Helbild,_Bethlen_Gabor_-_Livrustkammaren_-_65332.tif https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Sabel,_shamshir_-_Livrustkammaren_-_39622.tif https://www.metmuseum.org/art/collection/search/30970 https://heritagearmssa.com/2017/11/10/kilij-the-sword-of-vlad-the-impaler/ *** Music credits *** "Desertland Theme" by Alexandr Zhelanov https://opengameart.org/content/heroes-3-type-music Attribution 4.0 International (CC BY 4.0) Outro: "Highland Storm" by The Slanted Room Records https://theslantedroom.github.io/steve.yee/ Used with artist's permission *** Merch *** https://www.bonfire.com/store/skallswag/ If you want to join Bonfire to start selling your own merch: https://www.bonfire.com/welcome/07bb14169c804/ *** Support the channel *** Help fund future videos, get bonus content and access to an exclusive Discord server: http://www.patreon.com/skallagrim https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC3WIohkLkH4GFoMrrWVZZFA/join Other ways to support the channel by shopping through affiliate links: Kult of Athena, my favorite online store for reproductions of historical arms and armor, fantasy swords, etc: https://www.kultofathena.com/?koa=259 Where to get HEMA gear and practice swords: http://www.woodenswords.com/?Click=1799 Want to treat your face fluff?
