The falcata is a curved sword that was popular in the Iberian Peninsula. The true origin of these short swords is unknown, but there is little doubt that they were effective cutting blades. In many ways the falcata resembles the kukri. The Spanish wielded the falcata to great effect against the Roman armies back in the day and the enemy had tremendous respect for the blade – modern Roman writers have described how the weapon had the capacity to split both the shield and helmet. The falcata has among the best chopping designs of all knives in history and our Cobra Steel Falcata is no different.
