END OF NOVEMBER DELIVERY
The Wakefield Falchion is a single handed medieval sword. The ‘falchion’ or ‘hanger’ developed during the many years of fighting of the Wars of the Roses. Designed to offer men at arms, foot soldiers and archers excellent hand protection in a compact, light and agile side arm. This family of swords are often referred to as Wakefield Hangers and have either a knuckle stud or full knuckle bow. Our version is based on the IX.144 from the Royal Armouries and incorporates the full knuckle bow I believe the sword originally had.
Sword comes complete with a period appropriate leather covered, wood cored scabbard and belt with copper alloy fittings. PLEASE NOTE some of the colours shown in the photos have no chape. Chapes will be fitted before the swords are shipped. Please refer to the black example for the finished look.
Sword is hand forged, hardened and tempered from EN45 steel and comes semi-sharp as standard.
Semi-Sharp is 'butter knife sharp'; it has a very fine flat on the edge. Sharp has been ground to give a reasonable cutting edge, but final honing, if required, is by the customer.
