Ibera Swords -Falcatas. The Falcata was the most significant among the Celtic swords, it has its origin in the knives of the iron age. It is curved and short (around 50cm)

The falcata has an asymmetric, single-edged curved blade. The edge rotates forward before going back again. This shape gives you a center of gravity located approximately in the middle of the blade and the cut point closest to the tip, which maximizes the power of each cut

The handle is as characteristic as the blade, small and one-handed, is shifted to the side. Its shape embraces the warrior's hand, often joining the blade again with a rivet

Its shape makes it eminently sharp, however, the presence of contrafilo seems to indicate that it also has use as a lunge weapon

There is 3 theory about its origin:

It can come from the curved knives of the Hallstatt culture
Comes from similar Greek weapons
The last theory attributes its creation to the Iberians
