An iconic and powerful sword of the Classical ancient world, the Falcata with its deep recurve blade bites deeply into a target and separating it with ease with its widened tip. The contoured and well-formed grip is fashioned to snugly fit the hand and by maximizing contact between the hand and grip from as many surfaces as possible it makes it less taxing on the hand to wield the blade and truly allows the full power of the arm and forearm to help power the sword in the strike. The blade is hand forged from resilient C60 high carbon steel – a steel with similar properties to 1060 high carbon steel. The sword has a robust full tang construction; the grip is two halves of smoothly polished bone and its guard and pommel are cast brass – all of these components are sturdily riveted directly to the thick blade tang.
Included with the sword is a utility byknife which has its own slot on the scabbard. The included scabbard is well-crafted from wood which is tightly bound in well-stitched genuine leather and embellished with brass fittings with brass hanging rings. The alignment of the rings allow for the bearer to choose to wear the sword at either an angle or vertically from a baldric belt. (baldric is not included).
Please Note: If additional sharpening is selected, the byknife will also be sharpened. Also – the hand used to model the grip measures 3.5″ across the palm and has a length of 7.25″ from wrist to end of middle finger.
