The falcata is a type of sword typical of the pre-Roman Iberian Peninsula which is now Spain and Portugal. The falcata has a single-edged blade that curves forward towards the point, the edge being concave near the hilt, but convex near the point. This blade is constructed of steel with a factory edge. Decorative fullers are etched into the blade on both sides to not only add extra flair but to help distribute the weight. The hilt of a falcate is usually hook shaped to keep it from flying out of the users hand. This brass handle is curved to form a closed hilt just like its ancestors and shaped into a horse with ornate detailing. This sword is thought to have been introduced in the Iberian Peninsula by the Celts who introduced iron working there. The shape of this sword is capable of delivering a blow with such momentum of an axe but with a long cutting edge of a sword giving it a longer reach. Included is a wooden scabbard that is wrapped with leather and hand stitched.
