Is there anyone out there who has used for cutting test the Windlass falchion?

I have recently put mine to the test with some extremly wonderfull results. I must admit that I had to improve on a few things first ,but I was much impressed on med target damage.

Any feed back would be apreciated.

Tim,

I've been looking at getting one of those; do you have any pics/video of it in action? It would be great to know a little more of what it's capable of before going for it.

I did not take pics because I was basicaly stupid. Here is the list of targets (in order)

1. 3 honey dew melons. Cuts were mere flick of the wrist and effortless. Blade slid through with 0 tension to sword and user. 4 cuts per melon

2. 3 10lb pumpkins(whole no inside scooped) Pretty much the same as honeydews but slight tension. 6-9 cuts per pumpkin

3. 5 2lt. pop btls filled with water. More effort in targeting this one. Slight increase in speed and it produced a clean cut with a 5mm drop in water height. Each btl was cut 2 times once at the neck and once in mid section. No torn plastic.
Clean cuts all he way around.

At this point still 0 dammage or markings on blade everthing is tight and solid!

4. 3 Pasta sauce can. (large) Highly targeted swings to mid section, med. strength. Cut through 90% of can clean cut almost all the way. Light scrap on non edge part of blade, buffed out in 3 minutes. Slight ding in blade edge. 4 file strokes a side to return to normal. 1 cut ea. can

5. Large paper roll 3" thick cardboard. Hard swing, cut through 25% of tube at a 55 degree angle of attack flowing downward.

Blade came out with just that 1 blemish. I've put more scratches on it hanging it up!
