The falcata has a single-edged blade that curves forward towards the point, the edge being concave near the hilt, but convex near the point. This blade is constructed of steel with a factory edge. Decorative fullers are etched into the blade on both sides to not only add extra flair but to help distribute the weight. The hilt of a falcate is usually hook shaped to keep it from flying out of the users hand. This brass handle is curved to form a closed hilt just like its ancestors and shaped into a horse with ornate detailing. Overall length is 29 inches.
