    Although its prevalence in Medieval art testifies to its popularity, very few original falchions still exist. This rarity of surviving specimens may be more proof of its popularity; most of the falchions were used up in battle! While 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 the addition of plates, 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 the 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. Complete with a leather scabbard. Can be sharpened for additional fee.
    • Overall: 34"
    • Blade: 28" long, 1-3⁄4" wide, 3⁄16" thick"
    • Wt: 3 lbs

    5-star rating for price to value. I like this model more than a couple more expensive ones I own. I would like to see the guard slot fitted over the entire blade where it enters but it is a great chopper and historically based.

    I recently recieved my new Falchion. This is a sword I've always wanted for my collection. It has no ornamentation and is not pretty, it is just a very authentic battle-ready sword. If you had to need a sword to defend your home this is it. Very solid, very strong, very sharp, very reliable. No complaints on the sheath, it is very basic, as is the sword. I am very happy with it. Good Job AC!

    I swung it at a plastic 2-liter soda bottle. Result? Broke at the tang. On the bright side, MRL agreed to send me a new one; it looks like I got a fluke in the heat treat.

    We regret the problem Johnathan had with this sword; we stand behind our products 100%. This appears to be the result of an issue during the heat treatment process at the factory. Somehow this piece fell through the cracks of quality control. Please be assured we will resolve the situation to Johnathans utmost satisfaction.

    A great sword. I baught mine a few years back and i only have a few user induceced scratches. My complaints would be it is a tad blade heavy, the handle is a tad small for bigger people and the sheath is bad... Also the sheathing process has caused scratches on my guard. Other than that the sword is a great bang for your buck.

    Great value. If I had to complain about a well made sword of this price I would say the pommel needs to be a bit heavier or chunkier to make it more balanced and that it is not a full tang blade. That said in motion the sword balance is not that much of an issue and the pommel seems securly fixed. This is a great falchion.

    Nice heft for a chopping weaponbut it could use more counter weight (pommel) to give it balance. Nevertheless, this is a good piece and well worth the price.

    Excellent weapon of this type for the price. It moves well dispite being "blade heavy" but one must expect this given it is (after all)a falchion.

    One of my favorite Windlass pieces, and one of the few that I have not had to replace from usage. The only gripe I have with it is that the grip is little short for my hand (I'm 5'10").

    Not a bad sword for the price. My scabard was tarnished. The blade was excellant, the grip was ok, but I was not impressed with the scabard.
