Including Certificate of Quality and Origin, Made in Toledo (Spain).

Roman chroniclers praised the quality of the iron that was used for the construction of the Hispanic weapons; they were surprised by its cutting ability and flexibility, one of the most prized and sought features in its manufacture.

As a curious note, reflecting the effectiveness of these weapons, after the first battles in the Iberian Peninsula, an order was given to Roman troops to reinforce with iron the edges of their shields, possibly due to the cutting power of the falcatas, much higher than the straight swords and sabers.
