Developed in The 14th Century, and popular in many Medieval Middle Eastern Nations, The Kaskara Sword remained relatively unchanged until the 19th Century. Blades were roughly 25 to 40 inches long, and featured an unusual scabbard (a bulging tip, further covered in leather). Double-edged and semi-blunted, The Kaskara was designed to be a slashing/hacking weapon. They were used by both foot and mounted soldiers. They also featured a plain handles and cross hilts. Some Berber Kingdoms favored them.
