The falchion 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 - a heavy battle sword designed to oppose transitional armor (maille reinforced with plate). The blade could shear maille with ease, and dent or crush lighter weight plate. This falchion replicates a sword in The Florence Museum dating from the early 1500's. The blade is high carbon steel, the guard and the pommel are steel, and the grip is polished hardwood. Comes with a stiff leather scabbard with steel fittings. A beautiful and impressive sword.

Production of these falchions was discontinued in late 2009, and then they briefly returned in early 2011. I have one more available. (note that these pictures are old and from before the days when I could photograph shiny steel without reflections making the blade look dark - in other words, imagine bright shiny steel in the pictures above ...)
