Falcata Sword Overview

The falcata is an iconic sword that originated in the Iberian Peninsula, spanning regions of modern-day Spain and Portugal, between the 5th and 1st centuries B.C.E. Its design shares kinship with slashing weapons from ancient Greece but stands out with a blade that is double-edged for approximately half its length, setting it apart from the predominantly single-edged Greek counterparts. The falcata draws a close resemblance to the shorter "kopis" from Greece, which started as a one-handed blade for cutting meat or for sacrificial purposes. Over time, its role transitioned from utility to combat. The blade's pronounced curve, fattening towards the tip, ensures a forceful chop reminiscent of an axe's impact. Meanwhile, its intricately curved handle provides added hand protection during combat.

Blade Composition

Crafted from pattern-welded Damascus steel, the falcata's blade is the product of intensive heat treatment and folding techniques. This process involves folding 11 distinct steel pieces five times, culminating in 352 intricate layers. This steel boasts an optimal blend of hardness and resilience, registering a Rockwell hardness rating of 56-58 HRC. The Damascus steel contains high carbon layers, primarily using 1095 steel — one of the most carbon-rich steels used in sword-making. The fusion of these layers yields a blade that balances a sharp edge with the strength and flexibility to resist intense clashes, epitomizing the ideal sword material. The falcata's handle, composed of wood and adorned with brass bolsters, complements its striking blade. Each sword is accompanied by a tailor-made leather sheath.
