Description of the Product

This medieval Hattin Falchion is from the Windlass Steelcrafts' Battlecry collection. The Hattin offers a sharp front-loaded blade that is capable of tremendous cleaving blows and chopping strikes. Yet, its center of gravity is well-balanced enough for a quick center-of rotation that gives its curved point impressive play. It is a serious cutting blade not for the weak-of-heart or weak-of-arm. Used by noble knights and common men-at-arms, it’s a prime example of this lesser known and under-appreciated European sword form.

Falchions were a family of single-hand Medieval and Renaissance swords that included the Messer, Storta, Braquemart, Badelair and Malchus, among others. So named for it’s single-edged “falcated” blade, from the Latin falcatus and falx meaning sickle, it refers to a sword that widens or curves forward at the point. Tracing its roots far back to Greco-Roman forms, the falchion has its own distinct aesthetic. No mere scimitar from the East, this is an indigenous European sword form that came in immense variations of shape, size, point design and hilt style. The Hattin follows one of the more popular Medieval versions, such as the famed Conyer’s falchion.

Throughout the history of war and fencing these robust weapons filled a much needed role for a short powerful blade. A true working-man’s weapon, the falchion served as a kind of “temperate zone machete” as well as fearsome tool of war. While sometimes lacking the cut to thrust versatility and warding capacity of a straight double-edged arming sword, it made up for it with a robust design that permitted viciously powerful blows.

Includes a matching scabbard with a belt stop, a frog to carry the sword and a certificate of authenticity signed by the smith who forged the sword.

Paikkakunnalla ollessani ja keskiajasta kiinnostuneena täällä oli pakko käydä. Aivan upea ja todella monipuolinen kauppa! Ystävällinen ja mukava myyjä neitonen esitteli minulle Etelä -Tirolilaisen mallin mukaan taidokkaasti valmistettua kypärää, josta tein myös kaupat. Liikkeen omistaja ei myöskään säästänyt vaivojaan esitellessään minulle haarniskavarustuksen eri osia. Erittäin asiakaslähtöistä palvelua! On todella hienoa, että tällaisia erikoisliikkeitä maastamme vielä löytyy, tämäkin kuulemma ainoa laatuaan. On varmaa, että vierailen tässä liikkeessä toistekkin! Täältä löytää uskomattoman paljon myös koriste-esineiksi ja lahjoiksi sopivia tavaroita, joten suosittelen tätä kaikille sellaisiakin etsiville.
