Forward curved blades

Postby FireFief » 17 Jul 2014 10:27

I was reading about the curvature of sword blades recently and its effect on cutting power, and I was wondering what effect would a forward curved blade like a falcata or Indian sosun pattah on cutting power as opposed to a scimitar for example.

Also feel free post pictures to forward curving swords
