Hannibal Falcata sword
"It owes its design to the Greek Kopis, a weapon the Carthaginians knew well, but with the added benefit of superior metals, making it larger and stronger. It's a great weapon from foot or from horseback. I forged the blade from a 1 3/4-inch-by-1/4-inch bar of high carbon steel, drawing the head of the blade into a convex profile so it would cut more like a knife than an axe."
