A scimitar (pronounced /ˈsɪmɪtər/) is a sword with a curved blade design finding its origins in Southwest Asia (Middle East).
The name can be used to refer to almost any West Asian or South Asian sword with a curved blade, and is often thought of as having a ridge near the end. They include Arabic saif, Indian talwar, Persian shamshir, and Turkish kilij and yatağan, among others. The word "scimitar", known in English since 1548, derived from Medieval French cimeterre (15c.) or directly from Italian scimitarra.
Scimitars have a long history. Scimitars were used in horse warfare because of its relatively light weight when compared to larger swords and it is good for slashing opponents, while riding on a horse, because of its curved design. Mongols, Rajputs and Sikhs used scimitars in warfare among many other people.
Many Islamic traditions adopted scimitars, as attested by their symbolic occurrence, e.g. on the Coat of arms of Saudi Arabia.
The earliest evidence of curved swords, or scimitars, is from the 9th century, when it was used among soldiers in the Khurasan region of Persia.
