    Circa 1250-1300

    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
    Can be personalized with 3 Initials (select below left).

    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.

    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.

    A 32" blade with a hand-and-a-half grip would be perfection! I guess I'll be forced to make one (that still weighs about 3 lbs!), or possibly with a 1/4" spine and a full tang with an integral pommel mount.

    I couldn't be more satisfied with this sword. It's a great sword to showcase some of the more exotic looking weaponry of Europe.
