Here's a thread over at SFI with some info on a new falchion made by Michael "Tinker" Pearce.

It looks like a decent sword inspired by the Conyers falchion.

Overall, I'm very pleased to see a quality replica falchion like this created. There's simply too few of them available. The specs look like he's done well to make this a workable sample, and one not dissimilar in basic specs to the one Bjorn documented. I like the simplified design of the hilt, though would wish for more subtlety of shaping and crispness of execution. The premature ending and overall shaping and blending of the fuller leaves me scratching my head and just breaks the whole thing in my eyes.

Agreed Nathan. It puzzles me as to why this type of "stopped" fuller continues to pop up in custom and production swords.

Are we at last brought to such humiliating and debasing degradation, that we cannot be trusted with arms for our defense?

Sometimes it's authentic, sometimes it's not. It depends on the sword, and more often, the era of that sword. But when it's not authentic for the sword, it just blatently stands out to me.

Not being a hardcore stickler for authenticity myself, just looking at this sword on its own merits, I think it looks fantastic. Certainly different from the few other falchion replicas out there. It has a really clean and purposeful look. Looks like an absolutely brutal cutter as well. Happy

It actually is authentic for this sword- or not. They were done both ways. I chose this way because frankly I liked it. I can do 'stopped fullers' or 'run-out' fullers- it's an asthetic judgement- which you are perfectly entitled to disagree with, of course. Frankly if 'period' is an issue the hex-nut retaining the pommel is a much bigger deal... Laughing Out Loud

Way cool. This falchion has a certain....'Darth Vaderishness' to it, if you will. " Impressive......most impressive.........Your skills are now complete." lol.......mcm.
