Wielded similarly to a saber or a broadsword and with blades designed for smooth, drawing cuts, scimitar swords are historically linked to Asian martial forces such as the medieval Turks and Persians. Scimitar swords were one of the signature swords of both the infantry and the cavalry of the fearsome and powerful Ottoman Empire. Meant to be held in one hand, scimitar swords left the other hand free for wielding a shield, a secondary weapon, or anything else you could think of to aid in battle.
Scimitar swords are sometimes referred to as “backswords” because of their single-edged design, as their triangular cross section gives a flat back edge opposite the cutting edge of the sword. The name “scimitar”, meanwhile, is thought to be a corruption of the Persian word shamshir, which roughly translates as “paw claw”, though it’s also synonymous with the word “sword” itself. With scimitar swords featuring a long, swept blade, this certainly makes sense as one possible origin of the name of the scimitar. No matter what name you called it by, anyone meeting enemies armed with scimitar swords would be in for the fight of their lives..
