Although is prevalence in Medieval art testifies to its popularity, very few original falchions still exist - significantly less than straight, double-edged swords. This rarity of surviving specimens may be more proof of its popularity; most of the falchions were used up in battle! Although the double-edged sword gets most of the press, the single-edged falchion was favored by a great many knights and men at arms. The wide cutting blade was quite effective against mail (although armor was being improved by plate additions, only the very wealthy could afford it). Although the falchion was intended primarily to be a cutting weapon, the development of the point was not ignored. This example has a very strong point that would penetrate mail with a hard thrust or stab. A well designed fighting weapon.
Made by Windlass Steelcrafts®. The blade is tempered high carbon steel, the guard and pommel are both steel, and the grip is wood, covered with leather. Comes complete with a leather scabbard.
