Falcata

#500062
$195.00

The Celt-Iberians of Roman times were justly famed for their weapons, such as the Falcata; one of the most devastating swords ever made! The inward curving blade delivered a tremendous blow and could split both shield and helmet. Considered to be of Greek, or possibly Etruscan origin, this sword spread into Southern Russia and also Spain. It was in Spanish hands that it was most feared by the Romans. The blade is made from high carbon steel. The handle is solid brass. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts. Comes with scabbard.

    I love this weapon! I have always wanted a falcata, and Windlass Steelcrafts did not disappoint! The sharp edge is incredible, and the heft of the weapon is what I expected it to be after all the studding of the item. The grip is very comfortable and well secured. The Brass really compliments the carbon blade. Completely functional, and beautiful to boot! Keep up the great work Windlass and MRL!

    I bought this on a deal of the day,as soon as it was offered, I had wanted it for awhile and
    I was not sorry I did,the blade is well crafted and if sharped cuts through targets easily,you can see why it was so widely used in ancient times by so many countries. Has excellent weight for chopping,and is solidly made have fun with this one.

    Picked this sword up as a deal of the day, for about $99.  Fantastic deal. Couldn't wait for it to arrive, as this piece is not my usual. I am very happy with my purchase. Solid, thick blade, made of a fine high-carbon steel, with a peened tang through the beautiful brass hilt.  The balance of the weapon is horrible, but it is not meant to be a balanced (or delicate) item. Crafted for pure chopping power (much like an axe), it is a very faithful reproduction of the originals, in modern materials.  Coupled with a round shield it makes for a devastating combination, waiting for the right moment for a solid, powerful strike.  As, I suppose, a purely good review is not exactly helpful, my only real complaint is with the cut of the hilt.  As the strength in a swordsman's grip should come from his base two fingers (pinky and ring) and the control with the top two, I find the bottom of the hilt a bit thin to get a good, solid grip with my base two fingers.  Not really the fault of the manufacturers, as this is the style in which the originals were made. Would probably feel a lot better with a solid pair of leather gauntlets to aid in the grip on the brass.  Either way, well done, again, Windlass Steelcrafts!

    16th Century German Mace

    By the 15th Century, armor had become so well developed that it was almost impervious to a sword cut and even a thrust. This heavy German mace, which evolved from man's oldest weapon, the club, could make short work of armor. With a few full sound blows the best of plate would be so damaged that the wearer's movement would be greatly impaired, quickly leading to defeat. This excellent example has 8 flanges and is made from steel which has a rust-protective coating in black to mimic the color of the original. The bottom of the shaft is wrapped in black leather for an improved grip. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts®.
