falcata
o2 steel and holm oak

Falcata is a typical pre-Roman Iberia type of sword. It was used with great effect during the Roman conquest of the Iberian Peninsula and is firmly associated with the southern Iberian tribes, among other ancient Hispanic people. The falcata has a single-edged blade that tilts forward, introducing a concave shape near the wrist, but convex near the end. This shape distributes the weight in such a way that it allows to strike with the thrust of an ax allied to the cutting of a sword.
