The falchion was a weapon used in battle more than most people realize. Considered a heavy, single edged weapon designed for heavy chopping, it has an ancient history that stretches back to the Bronze Age.  During the Renaissance its form became a little more elaborate, but its functionality remained the same. This was a heavy battle sword designed to oppose the combinations of plate and mail. We have copied a sword in the Florence Museum dating from the first quarter of the 16th century. The blade is high carbon steel. The guard and the pommel are steel, while the grip is polished hardwood. The scabbard mounts are also steel. A beautiful and impressive sword. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts. Can be sharpened for additional fee.

This sword is better than expected. The weight is to be expected for this type of sword but it is still easy to swing and maneuver into a guard position. It is very well balanced. The pommel to me is quite unique, it definitely is a conversation starter. Overall a very exquisite piece for a collection.

Picked this up for a Solomon Kane outfit and I am very satisfied. Will have to put an edge on it after Halloween and do some cutting tests.
