Falchion swords varied widely in style across continent and throughout time. Falchion swords were commonly regarded as the most expensive sword of their era. Commonly falchions are shaped very much like a large meat cleaver. This style originates from the 13th and 14th centuries. The majority of the depictions in art reflect a design similar to that of the großes Messer. This blade style was influenced by the Turko-Mongol sabers that had reached the borders of Europe by the 13th century.

I was just chillin one day, and got that masculine urge “Damn, I want a sword” so I looked some stuff up learned about them and everything, and then started shopping. Ordered this thing and it arrived like a week and a half later. Real piece of art, beautiful stuff, no warping (I think that’s the term) nice almost brushed silver lookin hilt, very shiny and reflective steel blade. It did come with a sheathe, we’ll made brown leather. Thick, seeming good quality, but the fit is kinda poor, perhaps with use it’ll get better. My singular complaint is that the request I made with my order wasn’t fulfilled. I’d requested that when they make the blade (as far as I know these things are made to order) they don’t engrave the blade and instead of the flowing engraving on the handle, the etch in a diamond pattern for grip… it came as shown in the photo. Not a huge deal, as the whole sword is still beautiful, but of note to buyers who want their blade to look a certain way.
