So what's the difference between a cutlass and a scimitar and a saber_(weapon)? Should we just alias all of these to curved sword (after some cleanup, because I'm seeing random swords and rapiers especially in the last one)?

Straight bladed sabres and cutlasses are a thing. Im seeing several straight sabres, not so many cutlasses although there are a ton of scimitars and anime_BS curved blades tagged with cutlass (because pirate mostly).

Im not opposed to a curved sword tag, trying to define what kind of sword something is is a rather futile exercise since definitions varied over time and between cultures (American vs British for example).
