Scimitars are fast slashing weapons. They are identical in damage and attack speed to daggers and maces. Scimitars are generally the most expensive of the three 'fastest' weapon types, and they lack the prayer bonus offered by maces. Nevertheless, they remain popular due to the reputation they have gained over the years as being the ideal training weapon.

Scimitars are made with the Smithing skill, purchased at a scimitar shop identified with the scimitar Scimitar shop map icon.png icon on the map, or bought from another player. One scimitar shop is Zeke's Superior Scimitars, located in Al Kharid. Unfortunately, it only sells bronze, iron, steel, and mithril scimitars. There is also a members-only scimitar shop located in the Ape Atoll that is only available after completing the Monkey Madness quest. This shop sells dragon scimitars.

As with most off-hand melee weapons, off-hand scimitars do only half the damage as their main hand counterpart, as well as being equipped in the shield slot.

Trivia

  • Holding position of scimitars was updated with the Herblore Habitat update on 24 November 2010.
  • Prior to 12 April 2011, the dragon scimitar was the only scimitar to have had an animation update that distinguished it from all other scimitars. This has been updated, so that all scimitars share the updated animation.
  • When you ask Zeke in Al Kharid if you can buy a dragon scimitar, he tells you "Only the banana brained nit-wits who make them" This is a reference to the monkeys from Ape Atoll who create them.
