TLC does.

But I'm sure BF could make a better one.

There is a LEGO scimitar, but it's huge. Little Armory made one... but, y'know...

...Also, BrickArms makes a DaDao (Curved Chinese Sword/heavy scimitar).... Now if BrickForge wanted to make something more along the lines of a Shamshir/Tulwar/light Scimitar, then I'm definitely for it... My Wasteland Raiders need something better than LEGO Katanas for their thin Scimitars! (Especially if it fits the LEGO dual-sword holster thing that's in the PoP sets and/or the BrickForge Sword Belt).

Well I am NOT familiar with other companies so I thought BF would make a nice one. :}

I'm not saying it's a bad suggestion... Like I said, AFAIK, nobody makes anything like the classic "thin" scimitar (which would also work for a Tulwar and a Shamshir as well)... The closest thing I've been able to find is the BrickForge Elven blade, but it's still not all that similar (for one, the handle is far too long, and the blade is a bit too elfy-looking, but it does fit the general profile of a scimitar).... Hopefully Armothe will consider making such a sword.

Two comments about this. 1st, Scimitar's are public domain, so regardless of who makes them, that is not an obstacle for BrickForge. 2nd, before the forums switched over to their current state and some posts were lost, Redbean provided us with a photo of an originally planned scimitar that BrickForge decided to not include on one of it's first molds. I remember seeing the pic and thinking it was pretty cool.

Something like the Lego pirate cutlass, but without the curved hand guard would be optimal, for a legit scimmy, that's not as obnoxious as TLG's. I'm all for it.

I would say something half the size as TLC version would be great. I know BF makes the Raider blade and thats a nice piece.

Very cool. I hope it sees production eventually. Also, the BrickForge cutlass looks pretty similar to a scimitar. Works much better than TLC's scimitar, IMO, especially if you cut the hand guard off.
