Cleaver Falchion, 1250-1300

This type of falchion appears in some pictures of the "Cantigas de Alfonso X el Sabio" as a weapon with high defence efficiency than a dagger. The blade designs of falchions varied widely across the continent and through the ages. They almost always included a single edge with a slight curve on the blade towards the point on the end and most were also affixed with a quilloned cross guard for the hilt in the manner of the contemporary long-swords. Unlike the double-edged swords of Europe, few actual swords of this type have survived to the present day; fewer than a dozen specimens are currently known. Two basic types can be identified: Celaver Falchion and Cusped Falchion. More information...
