pot of boiling water ... aluminum foil ... 15 - 20 minutes ... and your foot ...
find a good sized pot ... with a lid ... boil your water ... put the foil on the lid so it hangs over the sides of the pot to keep the steam in ... use a couple pieces of old rattan or something to prop the lid up on 2 sides ...
put your rattan in between the 2 old rattan pieces ... at the point you want to bend it ...
steam for 15- 20 minutes ... the rattan bends like a wet noodle ... put it under your foot ... or any where you can bend it the way you want ... hold it for a bit ... minute or less ... let it cool ... repeat as needed....
I make my scimitars this way ... works perfect every time
and to all the marshals before they ask...... ITS NOT BROKEN ... IT'S A SCIMITAR
May Allah keep and protect you and yours
