The scimitar was similar to the falchion in that it was a "backsword", sharpened on one edge and the other edge was thicker to give it strength. Scimitar blades were 2 to 3 ft (60 to 90 cm) long and almost always curved but a few are angled like a khopesh. Starting at the hilt, the blade may taper gradually to a point or may increase in width and then rapidly come to a point. The hilt was one-handed and had quillons. An average scimitar cost 15 gp and weighed 4 lb (1.8 kg).
Scimitars did not have the damaging power of longswords or other heavier swords, but with skill they could hit vital areas better than most. Using the one-sided, curved scimitar required special training and was therefore classified as a martial weapon.
First appearing on Toril around the year -2059 DR (1880 NY), scimitars developed from the khopesh, which were created a thousand years prior. These blades were commonly favored by Calishites and some druids.
