Falchions are a wonderful medieval bladed weapon of the 13-15 centuries.
Falchions had a huge number of handle shapes and blade options.
Medieval smiths experimented for a long time, trying to combine the characteristics of a straight universal sword (knight’s sword) and a special slashing weapon.
The name of the weapon comes from the Latin falx – scythe. The blades of some falchions do look like this agricultural tool.
The falchion was usually single-edged. The handle was often the same as that of a knight’s sword. But thanks to the widening of the blade, the falchion strike was more powerful. In medieval images, wide falchions are often found next to swords. One handed, two-handed falchions also appeared trough the history. Choose one for yourself and win a lot of battles!
