The Falcata is believed to be a descendent of the Greek Kopis. The single edge design with the heavy forward balance made it a devastating cleaving weapon, capable of severing flesh, bone and armor in a single blow. The falcata was used to great effect by the Spanish and Celt-Iberians against the Romans for hundreds of years..
