Arab technology was an important factor in the development and spread of gunpowder. Islamic gunmakers did not, as in the west, constantly change the design of firearms. As a result, a successful lock design would survive long after it had been discarded in Europe. Islamic armourers have always respected tradition. The curved single-edged swords still worn for ceremony, differ little from those carried in the 15th century.
