In Greece, this style of downward curved chopping sword was called a kopis. To the Celts
of the Spanish peninsula, it was a falcata. The curved blade delivered a tremendous blow
and could split both shield and helmet. This modern version of an early style falcata features a hand-forged 1095 high carbon steel blade, fully tempered in state-of-the-art computer controlled ovens to a Rockwell hardness of 48-52, and a rugged hard rubber mold-over grip that absorbs shock. The grip is purposefully longer than on most machetes for a second hand hold when extra chopping power is needed. Comes razor sharp, with a leather belt sheath. An historically efficient chopping blade, done modern!
