OVERVIEW

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, with cut outs at each end of the guard. The grip is wood covered with leather. Complete with a leather scabbard.

Can be sharpened and/or personalized with 3 Initials for additional fees.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

Absolutely beautiful weapon. It really comes alive in the hand. Despite the weight, which is on the high end of a 1-handed sword, the balance is fine and it doesn't feel heavy. Highly functional design, very sturdy, and very well made.

Exactly as described exactly what I expected.  Overall balance and feel of the sword is excellent for me.

This is the fourth sword that I have purchased from MRL. I guess that you can't win 'em all. The sword is well built and sharp as hell, but the balance is far too blade heavy. Although it weighs less than three pounds (my scale shows 2 pounds, 14ounces) it feels much heavier. I got this sword as a Deal of the Day, so it's not as if I didn't get more than my money's worth, and it's fine steel so this sword will likely find a place in the shed and I'll let that blade heavy steel cut a path through branches and brush. It's sure solid and sharp enough!

Decent sword for the price.  However, even though a falchion is supposed to be front heavy, this sword just doesn't feel right. Made sturdy but handling of the blade is not up to par with other Windlass offerings.  I got this sword on the Deal of day and I would definitely purchase again at that price.  There are however better Windlass offerings that are 5 star.  Such as the "european sword."  If you're buying for looks and sturdiness than this blade will please.

This is one of eight swords I have purchased from Museum Replicas. I have been incredibly pleased with all but this one. Unfortunately a defect in the tang has caused mine to warp after very light test cutting. The point of mine is more than 3 inches out of alignment with the pommel. If not for this I would have to give this sword five stars.
