5160 Spring Steel Replica of the most commonly encountered sword on the medieval battlefield, the Falchion. Designed by and part of the Brookhart collection by Bruce Brookhart. MSRP $824.00
The Falchion sword was a heavy single edged cutting sword that was used throughout the Middle Ages as an effective battle sword. This example from around 1530 defers from earlier medieval types in as much as the blade is not as wide and comes to an effective stabbing point. Styled after the type of sword in common use in the many wars between France and the Italian City States as France tried to dominate the lucrative Italian trading networks, this type could also be seen in use through out most of Northern Europe.
The steel "S" shape guard has an elongated back arm to help to protect the hand and wrist from a blow while the pommel balances it nicely. The grip is wrapped with cord and covered in rich black leather and the sword is peened together like the originals. Comes with a handsome wood scabbard, covered with brown leather scabbard.
About the designer, Bruce A. Brookhart
Hello my name is Bruce Allen Brookhart and I have actively been researching edged weapons for the last 50 years.
During that period I worked with Hank Reinhardt for over 17 years and consulted with Ewart Oakeshott for about 10 years until shortly before his passing. I am proud to be able to say that these two late, great gentlemen were my friends and I have gleaned, I felt, a lot of knowledge about the subject from this association and my own research.
For the past 30 years I have made literally hundreds of prototypes of edged weapons both exact replicas of museum pieces and pieces from private collections along with my own Fantasy designs. The weapons in this collection are all my own designs that are heavily related to weapons that were used in history but are all “of a type known” and not per say replicas of any certain weapon.
