I am selling my falchion created by Arms+Armor Manufacture of the Czech Republic. I purchased this piece from TherionArms, but they no longer carry these items. You can still purchase them new from the maker, but you'll have to deal with the international sales issues.
As my Hands-on Review says, I wasn't particular thrilled with this piece when I got it. I'm a bit more open-minded about it now, however, after I've shown it to several people in the arms and armour community. While the general criticsms expressed in the review are recognized, the overall impression that the other people had of the piece was pretty positive.
This falchion exhibits vertically recurved quillons and a side ring, updating the piece to perhaps a 15th century example. A wide fuller, pushed right up against the spine of the blade, extends nearly its full length. The grip is wrapped with leather and the blade is sharpened by the maker.
