Scimitar and Kilij are examples of the curved swords popular in the Ottoman Empire and Persia since the ninth century.
The blades of these swords are slim, single edged, tapering to a point only at the very end. As weapons, they were better suited to slashing un-armoured opponents, rather than for thrusting. Typically used one-handed, the warrior could also carry a short blade or shield into battle.
