"Do you see those warriors from Hammerfell? They've got curved swords. Curved. Swords."
―Guards[src]

The Scimitar is a somewhat rare, curved sword that appears in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Its quality is equal to that of an Elven sword, only lighter and less valuable.

LocationsEdit

The scimitar typically cannot be purchased from a merchant or blacksmiths. However, there are several locations where one may be found:

VariantsEdit

SmithingEdit

Though the scimitar cannot be forged by the Dragonborn, it can be upgraded with a steel ingot at a grindstone, and also benefits from the Steel Smithing perk, which doubles the improvement. 

TriviaEdit

  • Hold guards may comment on the Alik'r and their weapons, expressing surprise at their use of curved swords: "Did you see those warriors from Hammerfell? They've got curved swords. Curved. Swords."

BugsEdit

  • If the scimitar is the second weapon to be placed on a weapon rack or shield plaque, it will be in the correct alignment, but much higher up than the other weapon.
    • Placing the scimitar first avoids this issue.
