An Ottoman Sword; Elif Sword
What comes to mind first when the Ottoman Empire is mentioned? The conquest of Istanbul? The fall of the Byzantine Empire? Or is it the closing of one era and the opening of another? The answer you can give to this question may vary depending on your knowledge of history or your interest. Ottoman swords come to our mind first, as our job is to produce and sell Turkish swords.
Ottoman swords have been used in different sizes and designs over time. According to the conditions of the time, Turkish warriors used different sword models. Another reason why warriors use different swords is that the tactics they use in battles are different from each other.
The sword is a melee weapon. That is, to use the sword, it is necessary to be close to the enemy. This proximity should be about the size of a sword so that the warrior can wield his sword against his enemy. The originals of Ottoman swords were of different sizes. Each warrior could choose the sword he could use best according to his own height.
One of the most used sword models among Ottoman warriors is the Elif Ottoman sword. The name of this Ottoman sword “Elif” derives from a sacred analogy. “Elif” is the first letter of the Quran, the religious book of the Muslims. The letter Elif is a letter that looks like a straight line. When we look at Ottoman swords and Turkish swords, we see that many models are curved. Each sword model has its advantages and disadvantages. Warriors would choose the most suitable sword models among these models, according to their fighting skills and tactics. We see that there are more curved swords than straight swords among Turkish swords.
In the period after the Turks’ conversion to Islam, the Turks no longer fought only for their political interests and aims, they also fought to serve Islamism. The struggle of Muslims to serve and spread Islam is called “Jihad belief”. Turks believe that their wars are holy by the understanding of Jihad. The first letter of the Islamic holy book is the letter “Elif”, which looks like a straight line. Elif Ottoman Sword model is called “Elif” because it is straight.
