I am going to try to get this article back on track, starting with detailing how this does not refer to a specific type of sword. I will add citations as I go along.Dlatrex (talk) 20:52, 4 November 2019 (UTC)
Arabs use this sword long before Turkish invasion because as you probably know Sword of Uthman, Ali and Muhammad were scimtar (in particulary Zulfiqar how is probably one of the most known scimtar) — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2A01:E34:EF25:CEF0:3C3B:77A:75CA:4370 (talk) 21:24, 18 February 2013 (UTC) there is just no piece of evidence that supports the names you listed wielded a curved sword. in fact, some depictions like thisshow that they were not curved. THIS ARTICLE IS HEAVILY VANDALIZED BY ARAB NATIONALISTS. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 00:58, 11 April 2013 (UTC) 1.

If info is needed about Western Asian sabers, there are rich articles in Wikipedia about saif, shamshir, pulwar, tulwar, kilij, dao, shashka,shashu, mameluke saber and many other related saber types. The term scimitar itself isa misconception by the orientalistic western imagination. It is the arms and armour equivelant of the orientalistic terms such as "Saracen", "Seraglio" or "Orient". It could be about how westerners misperceived the different yet related types sabers in muslim nations and their historical evolution and imagined this orientalistic "scimitar". You can write an article about that phenomenon. But this article isn't even about that. It is a provierbial soup of confusion of terminology, culture and historical evolution of several types of swords, souced with lots of myths, prejudice and misperceptions that would even shame the most ignorant 12th century crusader. It is literally a mess. There is more than enough info in Wikipedia on every saber type ever used by West...
Look, I'm a video game nerd myself, but this is an encyclopedia, not a gaming web site. This article contains two and a half lines of factual information followed by a page of fanboy trivia garbage. Why is it that nerds feel obligated to fill every article related to weapons or anything Japanese with a list of video games or anime in which they appear? You'll notice that the "Apple" article does not contain a list of every book and movie in which a character ever consumed an apple, nor does the "Pants" article have a list of famous pant-wearers; this is because it's not encyclopedic information. A scimitar is a type of sword; of course half of the fantasy games out there have them. Someone needs to start a "Purge Wikipedia of Fanboyism" project. 1. You're quite right, though there's no need for name-calling. I will attempt a revision. - Mcasey66620:06, 14 July 2006 (UTC) 1. 1.1. Don't forget the use of wood in popular culture.

Is it really relevant to have that banal comment about a Forgotten Realms character at the end? If it's in there at all, should it not be subordinated in a "Misc." or "Fiction" section? Really, it tarnishes the article. 1. I moved it into a separate section, but it belongs in the article; Drizzt Do'Urden's use of scimitars is among the most famous modern fictional uses of scimitars, and he is notable in that he does not come from a Middle Eastern culture. —Lowellian (talk)[] 03:14, Oct 28, 2004 (UTC) Scimitars are also common in Dungeons & Dragons, and all of the video games based on it, often being used by druids.-LtNOWIS22:30, 22 Nov 2004 (UTC) 1. Although Drizzt does not come from a Middle Eastern culture, his role within the Forgotten Realms has an analogue in the 'Good Saracen' of Medieval and Modern literature.

check the article on swords...technically a sword, by definition, has 2 cutting blades. scimitars aren't really swords. 1. Reread that article. At least as it currently stands, swords "usually" have two edges. I don't think I've ever seen anyone argue that sabres, scimitars, katanas, falcatas and so on are not swords. --Iustinus01:58, 18 September 2005 (UTC) 1. 1.1.

The article says it is "relatively light." However, I do not consider these swords light. A dagger or foil is light. If one hacks like a machete, it's more like bludgeoning, which means heavy, upper arm use. I've never used either, but it seems "light" would imply forearm and wrist parley. -- Kristinwt (talk) 03:44, 7 November 2010 (UTC)
I wonder: is there is any distinguishing done between types of scimitars? It seems to me that scimitars bearing similar lines to the shamshir are rather different from the heavier swords dubbed scimitars in the movies (here I'm thinking especially of Azeem's sword from "Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves"). Obviously, that weapon was custom-made for the film, but it still is a lot closer to the depictions of scimitars that I remember from history books and the like (e.g., long, heavy blade, widening toward the tip, with a recurved "hook" between the tips of the front and rear cutting surfaces). Sacxpert00:11, 22 August 2006 (UTC) 1. In pop-culture scimitars are incorrectly depicted as being broad-bladed, single-edged swords with a scalloped curve on the inner edge near the tip, exactly as you mentioned. Real scimitars look nothing like them. It's a Hollywood invention, just like the "fact" that the Japanese katana can supposedly cut through anything. 22.214.171.124 (talk) 04:09, 14 Septe...
First, I believe I must disclaim myself. I am primarily focused in western european weaponry, armoury, and martial arts and know little of anything much east of Italy or Germany. I have been taught, however, and read in countless published texts, that these swords are in fact the same, but under two different names. What is the physical or geographical differentiation between the two? It seems that both have exactly the same physical characteristics and existed at the exact same time in the exact same place. The wikipedia articles provide no clear differentiation, and no text I have found (aside from the Oxford Dictionary, which is not very reputable source for sword-related information) supports the concept that the two are less than the same weapon (from my understanding most scholarly texts find the later appearance of the word "scimitar" in the 1500s a bastardization of shamshir, a product of trade and revised interest in the middle east). If the shamshir is now "more inclusive"...

The name is thought to be derived from the Persian word shamshērwhich literally means “paw claw,” due to its long, curved design. The word has been translated through many languages to end at scimitar. In the Early Middle Ages, the Turkic people of Central Asia came into contact with Middle Eastern civilizations through their shared Islamic faith. Turkic Ghilman slave-soldiers serving under the Umayyad and Abbasid Caliphates introduced "kilij" type sabers to all of the other Middle Eastern cultures. Previously, Arabs and Persians used straight-bladed swords such as the Indo-Persian Khanda and earlier types of the Arab saif, takouba and kaskara. During İslamizaton of the Turks, the kilij became more and more popular in the İslamic armies. When the Seljuk Empire invaded Persia and became the first Turkic Muslim political power in Western Asia, kilij became the dominant sword form. The İranian shamshir was created during the Turkic Seljuk Empire period of İran. The term saif in Arabic...
The curved sword, the sabre, is called muhaddab in Arabia and occurred after the Turkish Seljukmigration from Central Asia to Anatolia, popularizing the pre-existing Byzantine sabre designs for cavalry use, which influenced the entire region. The word shamshir is Persian and refers to a straight-edged sword as well as to a curved-edged sword, depending on the era of usage. The Indian talwar is a sword similar to the shamshir, with the exception of a broader blade, mild curve and a disk shaped pommel which provides a very secure grip. The sword is made from very hard wootz steel. The word "tulwar" literally means "sword" in Urdu/Hindi. The tulwar is unusual in that it can be used for thrusting as well as cutting. The kilijis a scimitar used by the Turks and the Ottoman Empire; it appeared around the 15th century. The kilij is a unique kind of scimitar that has a slight taper down the straight of the blade until the last third of the sword, when it angles sharply and becomes deeper. A...
Scimitars were used in horse warfare because of their relatively light weight when compared to larger swords and their curved design, good for slashing opponents while riding on a horse. The curved design allowed riders to slash enemies and keep riding without getting stuck as stabbing with straight swords on horseback would.Mongols, Rajputs and Sikhs used scimitars in warfare, among many other peoples. Many Islamic traditions adopted scimitars, as attested by their symbolic occurrence, e.g., on the Coat of arms of Saudi Arabia. The earliest known use of scimitars is from the 9th century, when it was used among Turkic and Tungusic soldiers in Central Asia. The scimitar is also used in Saudi Arabia as an executioner's tool for beheading.
