The falcata is a curved sword from the Iberian Peninsula. It is the Close-Range weapon of Hannibal Barca  and the special weapon of the Spartan in Deadliest Warrior: The Game.

The falcata has a forward curved blade with a single cutting edge on the concave side. The blade widens near the tip, narrowing in the middle. The hilt is typically hook-shaped so as to prevent the sword flying out of the user's hand in the heat of battle.

The falcata was primarily a slashing weapon, but it could also stab. The shape of the blade distributed the weight in a way so as to give the weapon the momentum of an axe while maintaining the versatility of a sword
