It may be purchased from Daga on Ape Atoll for 100,000 coins. A Monkeyspeak amulet does not need to be worn, as players can just right-click 'Trade' on Daga. Players who have freed King Awowogei in Recipe for Disaster can easily reach Ape Atoll through the Teleport to Ape Atoll spell (requires 64 Magic) to access Daga's shop on Ape Atoll more quickly.
The Dragon Scimitar has a special attack, Sever, which is more accurate and prevents the target from using prayer for 5 seconds, costing 55% of the Special Attack energy.

Interestingly enough, in the Monkey Madness quest (the quest a player must complete to wield a dragon scimitar), players have to play the role of a monkey's uncle to complete a certain part of the quest.
