FALCATA SWORD

hs61883_01

While watching Forged in Fire, I discovered a wide variety of different weapons that I could potentially use in my fantasy book. Among these weapons is the falcata, which was introduced by my Celtic ancestors before spreading to the rest of Western Europe. In some ways, the falcata operates like a machete as it hacks through enemy lines with powerful one-handed strikes. Also, this sword reminds me of the weapon of choice of Alexander the Great, which fits perfectly well with the theme of my fantasy book. Because I am drawing inspiration from my Celtic ancestors, I am thinking of including this sword in some of the factions in the fantasy world of my book.
