The Falcata Sword is often described as one of the most
swords that the Romans ever fought against.
And looking the blade, it's
not hard to see why, as it utilizes
a forward-curving blade design
that’s proven to be incredibly effective.
The falcata was originally
suspected to have been the weapon
of choice of the Celts, who spread its
use to the Iberian Peninsula
, where the Romans encountered it. Like the
falcata of old,
this weapon features a forward-curving blade
more weight and mass near the tip of the sword,
which allows this weapon
to deliver devastating blows
that cleave cleanly through all but the
strongest of materials.
Historically, its cutting strength was so
that the Romans were forced to reinforce their own shields,
as well as re-design their armor and weapons.
Unlike the historic
this model features a single-edged blade forged
high carbon spring steel. Adorning
the blade is a connected double
that helps lighten the blade somewhat.
It also features an
all-brass grip that curls around the wielder's hand,
providing a modicum
of protection as well as a superb grip.
The weapon measures
26 inches long and includes a scabbard for storing
blade when not in use.Key Features
