Wow—that looks really good! Love the greaves. Those look awesome too. Thanks for posting updates! Do you have any photos or video of you with the falcata? I’m curious to see how you suspended the scabbard assembly.

Thanks much. Does it bounce or shift excessively when riding? Is it easy to draw?

No it is fine. It sits up high under the arm. Very easy to draw.

Even with a fair bit of reshaping and grinding down this kopis/falcata is still a heavyish blade. I am having a more period kopis made that is much longer and more slender.

You can see how high I wear it in this photo.
