The falcata is thought to have originated on the Iberian peninsula, well before the arrival if its eventual Roman conquerors. Recreated through modern means, this Cobra Steel Falcata replicates this ancient swords rather effective and powerful design. This sword was a powerful weapon, one that forced the nearly-unbeatable Roman war machine to alter their strategies and enhance their armor, as they provided little defense against this brutally simple blade. The wider tip shifts the blades mass, ensuring that every cut falls like a heavy axe-blow, while the blades design retains the ability to thrust with remarkable effectiveness. This rugged outdoor blade is hand forged from 1095 carbon steel and fully tempered to give it a remarkable level of toughness, which is further enhanced by the weapons full-tang construction. Hardened rubber scales placed over the blades tang provide for a secure grip, one which is made purposefully longer than usual to allow for a two-handed grip when power wins out over finesse and speed. This survival blade comes with a razor sharp factory edge, as well as a leather sheath with a belt strap for easy and convenient carrying. The sword measures approximately 20.75 inches long, while its blade has an overall length of 14.5 inches. The falcata sword featured one of the most efficient cutting designs in history, so much so that it has been reused throughout history (it was the forerunner of the Nepalese kukri, really), and this Cobra Steel Falcata does not disappoint. And if you do not believe us, pick one up and start slicing, and you will be a believer in no-time flat.
