RK Euro Model 10 - Two Handed War FalchionBe the first one to write a review
Two Handed, single edged War Falchion - 1075 TH carbon steel blade, with Fuller
Taking a decades worth of experience with the best sword forges in Longquan (whose own sword making history dates back THOUSANDS of years) and combining it with the best practices of modern, fully functional European sword replicas - the end result is Ronin Katana's line of high quality, hand forged battle ready medieval swords - now available for immediate shipping at a price that practically any enthusiast can afford.
Each sword in this range is hand forged from top quality 1075 carbon steel, properly heat treated for strength and flexibility and sharpened so you can use them for cutting straight out of the box (or if you prefer, used to cut up the box, though be sure to take out the form fitting Styrofoam, added to protect against damage in transit). But no reason to stop there, these swords can easily cut water filled bottles of all shaped and sizes, super thick bamboo, tatami mats, you name it - they can handle it!
The swords vary in design and while not based on any particular medieval sword are historically plausible and designed to exhibit great handling and cutting dynamics rarely found at this price point.
Simply amazing value for money and a return to affordable medieval swords where every other maker has doubled or tripled their prices means that they will sell out fast, so grab one while you can!
This particular model is a two handed 'War Falchion' - a common battlefield weapon favored by the average medieval soldier or archer, though was used by all classes for its deadly effectiveness against lightly armored opponents. This two handed style was commonly seen in medieval manuscripts (especially depicting heathens and unbelievers), though as there are no surviving historical examples are out there, is not based on any particular historical sword. The blade of this one is of the cusped variant style similar to a Gross Messer that was in use from the 13th to the 16th centuries, with a fuller to lighten the blade slightly and optimize the balance and scent stopper pommel. Ready to cut straight out of the box.
