Falchion with leather scabbard, SK-B - battle ready.
The falchion, also called malchus, is a cutting weapon and was mainly used by archers, pikemen and other foot troops in the late Middle Ages as a secondary weapon.
The Ulfberth battle ready falchion has a forged spring steel (EN45) blade, oil hardened to approx. 48-50 HRC, forged through to the pommel and riveted at the pommel end. The handle is made of wood and was wrapped with a leather strap. The beautiful guard was hand forged from steel.
The blade edge is blunt and has been slightly rounded, as has the point.
General warranty notice for swords
Our display weapons are subject to the legal warranty of two years like all other goods. However, it should be noted that the burden of proof of defects (eg material defects), which were already present at the time of purchase and have not been claimed within 6 months, lies with the customer. Complaints after 6 months are therefore often difficult and unfortunate for both sides. A show sword is by its very nature a wear and tear item. Even the best and most expensive show sword will become chipped after heavy use, the guard can become wobbly and the handle loose. This is normal, because strong forces act on the material. There may even be the unlikely case of these blades breaking when they are already weakened by quite a few and deep nicks. These are therefore usually not justified reasons for complaint but normal wear and tear. A used show sword shows signs of use after use.
