Overview


This medieval Hattin Falchion is from Windlass Steelcrafts' Battlecry collection. Designed specifically to be used and made from 1065 high carbon steel with a darkened, battle-hardened finish, extra wide tang and tempering to a low 50s RC. This pre-sharpened blade has gone through rigorous testing. The hands-on nature of the manufacturing by master smiths makes this line unique. Includes a matching scabbard with belt stop, custom packaging and certificate of authenticity signed by each smith that touched your blade through every step of the forging process.

The Hattin offers a sharp front-loaded blade whose center of percussion is capable of tremendous cleaving blows and chopping strikes. Yet, its center of gravity is well-balanced enough for a quick center-of rotation that gives its curved point impressive play. It is a serious cutting blade not for the weak-of-heart or weak-of-arm. Whether noble knight or common man at arms, it’s a prime example of this lesser known and under-appreciated European sword form.

Falchions were a family of single-hand Medieval and Renaissance swords that included the Messer, Storta, Braquemart, Badelair and Malchus, among others. So named for it’s single-edged “falcated” blade, from the Latin falcātus and falx meaning sickle, it refers to a sword that widens or curves forward at the point. Tracing its roots far back to Greco-Roman forms, the falchion has its own distinct aesthetic. No mere scimitar from the East, this is an indigenous European sword form that came in immense variations of shape, size, point design and hilt style. The Hattin follows one of the more popular Medieval versions, such as the famed Conyer’s falchion, with a surprisingly maneuverable convex shape matched to a classic cruciform hilt. Throughout the history of war and fencing these robust weapons filled a much needed role for a short powerful blade. A true working-man’s weapon, the falchion served as a kind of “temperate zone machete” as well as fearsome tool of war. While sometimes lacking the cut to thrust versatility and warding capacity of a straight double-edged arming sword, it made up for it with a robust design that permitted viciously powerful blows.

A very nice looking Falchion,  I love that the designers went for a relatively subtle Type 1 A style of blade rather than the normal clipped tipped style and the blade seems very well tempered, it rings very nicely.  The stone wash finish is nice enough.  It looks best on the hilt components and it's rather comfortable in the hand.  The only negative to this sword is the weight.  It's not overly heavy and it's balance point is about 4 inches which is great, but at just under 3lbs it can feel a bit tiring after a while and it defenatly wants full arm cuts as opposed to wrist cuts.  Had they kept the weight down or given it more distal taper this would be a fantastic sword for the price, as is it's a very good, very handsome, very fun sword for the price and I would recommend it.

Actually went to the store to check this line out. They are fantastic looking! I was very interested in the falchion and viking blades. The finish is very neat although not quite stonewash, but somewhere in between. The edge was a little lacking to be called razor and the blades were all out of stock! Unfortunate, but I'm hoping to buy one soon.

Agincourt War Sword

Filling an under served niche in available swords today, the Agincourt hand-and-half sword from Windlass Steelcrafts Battlecry collection is a slender, light, quick weapon well-suited to facing armored or unarmored adversaries. This is an agile weapon whose length and weight make it highly effective on its own in either one or two-handed fighting. But it’s equally dangerous when paired with a buckler or even a larger shield. Combining versatility with utility, the dexterity and lightness of the Agincourt betrays a dangerous fighting blade of respected martial utility. With a 1065 high carbon steel blued patina, it’s well protected from the frequent rust spots and stains that occur so often from everyday practice and exposure to the elements. The battle-hardened finish had an extra wide tang and is tempering to a low 50's RC. This pre-sharpened blade has gone through rigorous testing. The hands-on nature of the manufacturing by master smiths makes this line unique. Includes a matching scabbard with belt stop, custom packaging and certificate of authenticity signed by each smith that touched your blade through every step of the forging process. One could easily envision English long-bowmen and knights alike wielding this blackened blade on the fields of the famous and disastrous battle honored in the naming of this sword.
