Historical Information

A shotel is a curved sword originating in Abyssinia (ancient Ethiopia). It looks very much like a Near Eastern Scimitar, but the curve is almost a full half circle. The blade is flat and double-edged with a diamond cross-section. The blade is about 40 inches in total length and the hilt is a simple wooden piece with no guard. The shotel was carried in a close fitting leather scabbard.

The Abyssinians did not use any fencing techniques, so these blades were not used to slice or cut through but to hook the opponent by reaching around. Its shape is similar to a big sickle and can be effectively used to reach around an opponent's shield and stab them in vital areas, such as the kidneys or lungs.
