The falx is a curved sword-like weapon originally used by the Dacians and Thracians, but later adopted by the Romans. In Deadliest Warrior: The Game, it was the Special Weapon of the Roman Centurion.

Description

The falx had a curved scythe-like blade with a long handle with a single cutting edge on the concave side of the blade.

Uses

The deep curvature of the falx's blade made it a purely offensive weapon with little defensive capabilities. Thus, it was mainly used after the enemies' ranks had been broken by long-distance attacks, with falx-wielding soldiers hacking the devastated adversaries apart.
