Fashioned after an original German Falchion from around 1500, this falchion with its distinctly cleaver-like blade was handcrafted in the Czech Republic. Its thick-spined blade is forged from 14260 CSN high carbon steel. It has been tempered to possess a hardness of 50-52 HRC.

The pommel and crossguard are handcrafted from steel. The octagonal wooden grip is wrapped in supple leather - it has a center ring of steel that divides the grip.

This falchion has a very durable hilt construction - the thick tang is given a large peen over the pommel and both the crossguard and pommel have been welded to the tang.

This falchion has both a thick blade spine and a wide tip - the two combined ensure that this sword cleaves and hacks with great force. Sometimes medieval illuminations depict battle scenes in which swords cleave helmets - it is not known whether this is depicting actual battlefield damages and wounds, or whether this is artistic embellishment to exaggerate the strength of the combatants depicted and to make the battle appear especially vicious for a medieval audience. The likelihood of a sword cleaving a helmet seems unlikely making them likely exaggerations, but if ever there was a sword that could do it in such times, it would be a falchion such as this. A falchion such as this could easily clear away limbs with its vicious strike - even a well-armored warrior would have to respect the concussive power of its hits.

Of course we don’t recommend you attempt to hack apart a helmet with this sword, you will damage the edge at the least and would certainly be classified as ‘’sword abuse’’.

This blade is moderately sharp - if you wish it have a sharper and more consistant edge, then you may wish you utilize our sharpening service.
