Medieval falchion suitable for combat. Based on the specimen shown in the illuminations of the Cantigas de Santa María by Alfonso X the Wise, dated from the 13th century.
This weapon appears in civilian situations as a more forceful form of defense than the dagger. In the vignette that has served as our inspiration, in addition, the contenders use the cape rolled up in their hand as a defense, possibly being one of the first and earliest representations of the use of the cape as a defense.
Made of steel with rounded edges and a wooden handle with brass rivets.
It includes a leather sheath as a gift.
- Total length 64.5 cm.
- Blade length 50 cm.
We recommend not storing the blade inside the sheath for long periods of time because leather is a hygroscopic material and therefore can transmit moisture to the metal and rust it over time.
Carbon steel is not treated so it may have rust, which is easily removable. You can protect this item from rust with synthetic or mineral oil. Claims due to this reason will not be accepted.
This product is a historical reproduction that is designed following its aesthetic appearance and materials but not in all cases to fulfill the same functions as the original piece.l!
