ReaverZ: AverageAmericanGuy: The scimitar looks like a terrible weapon to wield. Heavy and gawky with a flat area that is mostly useless. Even today, we don't see any swords like that except in comic books and fantasy literature.I guess that's why we don't see any world-class Persian swordsmen these days.well it is a cavalry sword, so not really meant for dueling.

ManateeGag: if it wasn't for him, that ad lib never would have worked.
