An arakh is a sword commonly used by the Dothraki. It is shaped half like a sword and half like a scythe. [1] There is at least one known Valyrian steel arakh in the world, it is currently wielded by Caggo. [2]

Notes

According to a representative of Valyrian Steel [3] HBO arakhs are similar to khopeshes whereas in A Song of Ice and Fire, arakhs are more like scimitars.
