Scimitars are fast slashing weapons. They are functionally identical to claws, and have identical 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, which sells scimitars up to adamant. 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.
