The Famous Damascus Sword.
It is but seldom Unit a real good
specimen of tho Damascus sword can
be ohtuincd, for tho art of working aud
engraving this kind of stool is dcud.
These swords are niado of alternate lay
ers of iron and steel, so finely tempered
that the blade would bend to the hilt
without breaking. The weapons had
edges so keen that nocout of mail could
resist them and surfaces so highly pol
ished that when a Moslem wished to
rearrange his turban he used his sword
for a looking glass.
