The falcata is a steel sword that originated in Iberia and is so associated with Iberian original populations prior to the Roman conquest. It was the most prevalent sword in the territory of the peninsula, and it was employed by Iberian countries or neighbors such as the Celtiberians. The quality of the iron used in the creation of Hispanic weapons was complimented by Roman chroniclers, who were astounded by its cutting ability and flexibility, which was one of the most desired and sought aspects in its manufacture.
After the first fights in the Iberian Peninsula, an order was given to Roman troops to reinforce the edges of their shields with iron, probably due to the cutting power of the falcatas, which was far higher than that of straight swords and sabers.
