blade width 48 / 69mm
grip110mm
crossguard 190mm
pommel 52mm

This is really powerfull weapon. Can be used with both hands. I was plannig to do some cutting tests in Janauary, but I dont know if will have a time for this...

Stunning work! I looked through your album as well, beautiful swords.

What sort of prices do your pieces go for?

Thanks Piotr! This is what I`m trying to do and I`m happy that you can see that.

Will - prices are really individual thing - depends on type of the sword and other options like aging, inlays, decorations, engaving, scabbard, etc...

That looks very nice.

I just happen to have a couple (very poor) pictures of the original. It is bottom center in the first image and off to the right in the second. Sorry for the quality; hopefully someone else will have a decent shot.

I'll second that: It's a really nice piece of work.

Funny how it's looks wrong because we are so used to seeing clip points reversed from this one ? Although from a function point of view reversing the pointy end seems like a good design choice, I wonder why most are turned the other way and if there is any advantage to the reverse falchion in cutting or thrusting. Confused Question

You can easily give up your freedom. You have to fight hard to get it back!

thanks Jean.
yes, this is interesting - I was curious about the reverse edged falchions and that why I had to made it and check Happy
this falchion is very representative for this type in my opinion - the proportions, basic battle style, no decorations - just effectivness.
and I realize that this is really powerfull weapon - combines the features of basic falchion, sword and axe in one perfect designed piece... actually it was quite popular weapon at its time - what we can see in medieval manuscripts.
the sharp edge has the point which can penetrate the helmets or other armour parts.
wide shape of blade make that weapon very strong in impacts - just like the axe power - but you can also swing and cut like with sword.
this is really something different, it`s very interesting experience of using this kind of falchion.
