The falchion was mainly used by infantry from the high and late Middle Ages to the Renaissance. It was a popular type of sword because of the simple production and because it cost little to make. Falchions were used for cutting, it had a fairly short blade with a slight curve in the blade. It didn't take much practice to fight a falchion. This falchion is based on medieval originals.

Prevent rust and corrosion by oiling your weapons regularly. Remove rust easily with black sandpaper. Remove burrs with a whetstone. Make sure you have removed all burrs before using a battle-ready weapon, as they can cause wounds.
Maintenance & care
Just as with weaponry, you can care for your shoes and leatherware by applying a little Ballistol after cleaning. This prevents the leather from drying out.
This item is perfect for beginning sword fighters and light battles but this sword is not covered by a warranty.
Tip: How to adjust the finish of your armour and weaponry
Luxurious (polished)- polish the steel with metal polish or toothpaste. You can even give the item a mirror-like polish. Test on a small surface first!
Handmade (matte)- soak the steel in cola for 40 minutes to 20 hours. Check regularly and treat with black sandpaper.
Antique (patinated) leave the steel to rust for some time in a damp environment, preferably outside. Remove the red layer of rust, to reveal the corroded top layer.
