Forging a Falcata sword, the complete movie.
This is a video I found from last year that I never posted, showing an Iberian Falcata purchased from www.kultofathena.com. They don't have this model anymore, but if you search for "Falcata" you can see several similar swords. The sword has an 18.5 inch blade, weighs over 3 pounds, and is made of an unknown carbon steel. The edge was put on by Kult of Athena. Sword Reviews: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLYRgjW5aW1hDhUkaPtT8NuOObsoRrPlKq
