The best pair is the one you have. As a dex ranger, anything finessable is good, especially if it's 1 size smaller than your character so you don't get additional AB penalties. While some weapons have advantages in the deep hells, in general I say pick what you like.
Slashing have the advantage of that you can use bladethirst on them right away without any special books, though I've made 2 non-slashing rangers so far and have had no problems using handaxes/sickles until I could read the transmutation book.
Scimitars can't be finesse unless you play a large race. While I do use a pair of dis scimitars on my medium sized strength ranger, and while they do decent damage, the dustbone scimitar is not particularly great, and I wouldn't turn down the chance to switch to something else.

Pick your base race, and there'll be at least 1 or 2 subbies that can work. There's a version on the free race boards with kobold, but that again you can't see armor. Best for style is any medium race, and then wield short swords crafted to look like katanas, or you can still dual wield scimis at an additional -2 to AB.
I really like katanas, and I found a way to get katanas on a medium sized character with little penalty. I had to drop toughness but that wasn't a biggie. Picked up LL enchantment so that can make up for the extra -2 from going medium weapon on medium size. Only sacrifice was toughness and blindfight (60 HP never really done much for me I must say, probably will get other opinions but I don't really care and 60 listen will make up for the loss of blindfight). If I chose to go with a small weapon my ab would be increased by two but then I don't get to dual wield light sabers
