The main advantage of the design of the flamberg blade sword in comparison with a conventional sword was a significant reduction in the striking surface in contact with the target. Thus, due to the gravity of the sword and the bends of the blade, the specific destructive effect per unit area was significantly enhanced — the curved edge had better cutting properties due to the concentration of the impact of the blade. That is, the flamberg blade combined the effectiveness of a curved sword with the straight blade shape familiar to Europeans. The protruding sections of the waves were the first to touch the target, which increased the chance of cutting through a hard surface. In addition, the reverse stroke of the wavy flame-shaped blade gave a quite obvious saw effect, dissecting the affected surface.
