European Crusaders first encountered the Armies of Islam in the Middle East
they were surprised by the battle tactics of their Muslim foes. For the first
time European armies faced lightning fast raids by mounted light cavalry who
also carried a lightning fast sword, the scimitar. Lightweight, quick and
deadly are probably the best words that could be used to describe this exotic
and formidable weapon.
scimitar was a one handed weapon with a very secure grip and its lines flowed
in a graceful slashing arc up to a deadly point resulting in a weapon as
effective at stabbing as it was at slashing. The Emerson Hattin is named after
the Battle of Hattin waged on July 4, 1187, a historic battle fought on the
arid plains below the Horns of Hattin that resulted in a crushing defeat for
the Crusaders and Byzantine by the armies of Sal Al A Din (Saladin) the
greatest of all Islamic Warriors and later nemesis of Richard Coure de Leone
(Richard The Lion Hearted). The Emerson Hattin features a scimitar style blade
and expresses perfectly the same meaning of those three words, lightweight,
quick and deadly used to first describe the Muslim Scimitar almost a thousand
