Falcata Synthetic Trainer V2

From Iberian (Spanish), this design works well for similar Greek weapons such as the Machaira or Kopis. It has a very forward balance point for a different feel for a sword. It has been referred to as "an axe with a handle".

What's in a name?
The nomenclature for this weapon is difficult. If it is found in Spain or Italy, it is called a Falcata, which refers to the hooked shape in Latin. If it is found in Greece, it can be interchangeably called either a kopis ("cleaver") or a makhaira (a general term for any curved blade). These are all the same weapon by different names.

Very Nice Cleaver July 28, 2018
Reviewer: Ahmad F.  
It's exactly what it says on the description, and swings very nicely. Balance-wise, it tends to tip forward, like what you're supposed to get with these kinds of blade. An exceptional trainer, given the price.

Good product, not so good processing May 31, 2018
Reviewer: Jacob Sprafka from Rochester, MN United States  
I love the product. It’s fun to fence with and very durable. However, it took almost a month just to process my order even though I ordered the thing when it was in stock. Every other thing I’ve ordered came in just a few weeks, so I don’t understand why this one took so long.

Serious choppers February 9, 2018
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Charlottetown, PE Canada  
Despite their necessary forward balance, these falcata trainers are remarkably nimble and responsive. We picked up a pair for a roommate, and they function surprisingly well when dual wielded. There is a certain level of adjustment required to get the most out of them, and don't expect them to work for anything -too- fancy, but they're well worth the price for an under-represented weapon of the ancient world, or for someone who wants to try something a little less standard in a falchion.
