A Mameluke sword /ˈmæməluːk/ is a cross-hilted, curved, scimitar-like sword historically derived from sabres used by Mamluk warriors of Mamluk Egypt from whom the sword derives its name. It is related to the shamshir, which had its origins in Persia from where the style migrated to India, Egypt and North Africa and the Turkish kilij. It was adopted in the 19th century by several Western militaries, including the French Army, British Army and the United States Marine Corps. Although some genuine Ottoman sabres were used by Westerners, most "mameluke sabres" were manufactured in Europe or America; their hilts were very similar in form to the Ottoman prototype, but their blades tended to be longer, narrower and less curved than those of the true kilij, while being wider and also less curved t

  • La spada mamelucca è una sciabola con elsa a croce tradizionalmente portata dai mamelucchi d'Egitto. L'arma deriva dalla shamshir di Persia e dal kilij, la scimitarra dei turchi, ma presenta una lama decisamente meno curva, più vicina alla linea della sciabola occidentale. Nel XIX secolo, la spada mamelucca venne adottata da diverse forze militari occidentali come l'esercito francese, l'esercito britannico, l'esercito degli Stati Uniti ed il Corpo di Stato Maggiore del Regio Esercito italiano.
  • Сабли мамлюкского типа — тип сабель, применявшийся в странах Европы с начала XIX века.
