    Circa 200 BC

    The Celt-Iberians of Roman times were justly famed for their weapons, such as the Falcata; one of the most devastating swords ever made! The inward curving blade delivered a tremendous blow and could split both shield and helmet. Considered to be of Greek, or possibly Etruscan origin, this sword spread into Southern Russia and also Spain. It was in Spanish hands that it was most feared by the Romans. The blade is made from high carbon steel. The handle is solid brass. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts®. Comes with scabbard.

    Picked this sword up as a deal of the day, for about $99. Fantastic deal. Couldn't wait for it to arrive, as this piece is not my usual. I am very happy with my purchase. Solid, thick blade, made of a fine high-carbon steel, with a peened tang through the beautiful brass hilt. The balance of the weapon is horrible, but it is not meant to be a balanced (or delicate) item. Crafted for pure chopping power (much like an axe), it is a very faithful reproduction of the originals, in modern materials. Coupled with a round shield it makes for a devastating combination, waiting for the right moment for a solid, powerful strike. As, I suppose, a purely good review is not exactly helpful, my only real complaint is with the cut of the hilt. As the strength in a swordsman's grip should come from his base two fingers (pinky and ring) and the control with the top two, I find the bottom of the hilt a bit thin to get a good, solid grip with my base two fingers. Not really the fault of the manufacturers, as this is the style in which the originals were made. Would probably feel a lot better with a solid pair of leather gauntlets to aid in the grip on the brass. Either way, well done, again, Windlass Steelcrafts!
