Comrade, welcome to DDO. It really depends on what you like. Since you're using an elf, their +2 damage enhancement would really make their scimitars very formidable. With improved critical, the crit chance for scimitars is 30%, which is very high (Kopesh will have 20% crit chance with improved critical). The thing with kopesh, however, is that their critical multiplier is X3, so criticals from Kopheshes hurt three times as much (X2 only for Scimitar). Both are good weapons comrade, but remember that Kopeshes need one feat in order to use properly.

Simple. Plan out your feats, If you have room for khopesh take it. If not .... ;)

As a barbarian you're going to hit anyway, so khopeshes deal more damage over the course of battle. On the other hand, an elf gets -2 constitution (the barbarian's primary stat - other than strength anyway). It doesn't make for a great matchup.
