Yet another spelling of scymetar, along with cimeter and Scimiter. Untill the early 1900s, any of these might have been used (Webster 1913 has only narrowed it down to three).

This is a saber with a curved blade, with the sharp edge on the convex side. They come from the middle east.

Also, a long-handled billhook, another curved blade.
