Regular price $359.99

The Iberian falcata is a type of weapon, a sword of steel originated in
Iberia, and therefore related to the Iberian native populations before
the Roman conquest. It was used by the Iberian countries or neighbors
like the Celtiberians being the most common sword in the area of the
peninsula.

Roman chroniclers praised the quality of the iron that was used for
the construction of the Hispanic weapons; they were surprised by its
cutting ability and flexibility, one of the most prized and sought
features in its manufacture.

As a curious note, reflecting the effectiveness of these weapons,
after the first battles in the Iberian Peninsula, an order was given to
Roman troops to reinforced with iron the edges of their shields,
possibly due to the cutting power of the falcatas, much higher than the
straight swords and sabers.
