A long sword with a wide, curved blade.
This weapon falls into the Long Blades category. It is a one handed weapon, and it is best used by the dexterous.

Scimitars are the best common one-handed Long Blades. While you may eventually wish to upgrade to a demon blade or a double sword, you can use a scimitar while you're still waiting to find one.

Notably, efreets, Erica, and Azrael always carry flaming scimitars.
