The arakh is the standard weapon used by Dothraki warriors. It is a long blade, making a semi-circular curve in its lower half, making it half-sword and half-scythe.

Jorah Mormont notes that while the sweeping blade is effective and indeed necessary for a warrior on horseback, the arakh pales in comparison to the sword for battling without a mount or at penetrating armor.[1]
