Shrine of North America Scimitar
by The Pettibone Bros. Co.
Shrine of North America Scimitar is a wonderful find! It was worn by
Shrine Temple Guards to keep off cowans and easedroppers during their
ceremonials! This scimitar still has its sheath and measures 31 inches
overall. The blade measures 25 inches. It has an Arabic theme with
a heavy brass eagle head handle and the Shrine emblem located at the
hilt. At the base of the highly polished blade is the makers name...
"The Pettibone Brothers". It dates to the early 1900's.
special "Thanks" to Brother Jerry Stotler (jstot on eBay) for
donating this beautiful scimitar to our museum collection. Thanks Jerry!
